Dear Blue Mother of God In more shades of blue than the sky Pray for us.

(Fr. Jan Twardowski, Matka Boska Blekitna)

The royalty of Mary and the Child is emphasized by the use of rich blues and purples in this night scene. Mary wears a tall crown and holds her doll-like Son for all to see. The Child spreads His hands, blessing all of nature. Even the most beautiful birds, the proud peacocks, humbly fold their fine tail feathers in the presence of the Madonna and her Son.
