Mary's amiability is directed first of
all to the Christ child as is shown in the Eleousa (tenderness)
expression of the medallion. The hearts of Mother and son are
burning in reciprocal love.
However, the verdict of the little angel is irrevocable, Mary is "amabilis super omnes." She is more lovable than all four of them.
"You exceed through your amiability the love of all other women" (2 Kings 1).
