In a golden green dress, the Holy Mother sits in a vegetable garden,
 looking after the golden green dill, ensuring it will be plentiful.

 (Fr. Jan Twardowski, Matka Boska Zlotozielona)

Dill is a necessary ingredient in many Polish dishes. The artist shows that Mary’s concern for the Polish people touches even the small details of daily life.  The Madonna’s dress blends with the background of golden-green dill heads. The Child holds a cross-shaped bouquet of golden flowers.
