(a city in Poland) 

The young Madonna in a cape of copper and gold stands in a field of irises. Teenage Queen with beautiful, holy hands. . . . Pray for us.

(Fr. Jan Twardowski, Litania polska)

Irises, symbol of the Annunciation, dominate this scene. Water, a sign of cleanliness and purity, is also very prominent. The young Madonna stands before a pool of water on which float golden water lilies. All around her are waterfowl and water plants.
