Overseen by God The Father, the face of a brilliant orange sun is partially obscured by Maria's veil -- a reference to "a woman clothed with the sun". "(A woman clothed with the sun is interpreted as referring to the most Blessed Mary, the Mother of all men by the grace of Christ the Redeemer.)" Displayed in a handsome 19th century gilt-wood frame.
