Virgin and Child

This is a ivory statue of the Virgin and Child. It represents Mary and Jesus Christ. It is from the early Byzantine  period, around 6th-7th century, and was found in Egypt. The carving is also called Eleousa, Virgin of tenderness. This statue shows the beautiful relationship between Mary and her son, Jesus Christ.  It teaches us how we should love one of each other like how Mary loves Jesus. We should all  have a statue of Virgin and Child, so that it can remind us of Mary’s love for Jesus.
