Virgo Praedicanda
Virgin Most Renowned

The cameo shows Mary in the posture of the Orante, hands crossed on her chest.  Putti (little angels) playing the trombone are surrounding Our Lady's picture.  Their musical instruments are flagged and bear the name of Mary.

Underneath the cameo we notice two scenes, both destined to proclaim the praises of Mary.  The scene in the foreground shows the interior of a baroque church.  The priest at the pulpit announces Mary's all-holiness ("Beatissimam praedicaverunt" Proverbs 31).  The second preacher, in an outdoor setting, praises the womb which bore Jesus.

"Your praise will not disappear from the people's lips" (Judith 13).
