Regina Virginum
Queen of Virgins

Mary is adorned like a virgin.  She holds a lily in her hands.  A wreath of flowers crowns her head.  Her hair is open and flowing freely to her shoulders-a typical sign of the young and unwed woman in Marian art.

A wreath of flowers and countless other virgins are surrounding Mary's picture.  The whole representation is dominated by the figure of the victorious lamb (banner with cross) who overcame death by giving his life.  The Virgin Mary and all other virgins are following the Lamb as Revelation reminds us,

"They are Virgins and these are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever he goes" (Revelation 14:4).
