I purchased this book as a gift for my mother whose faith and love for the Virgin Mary runs deep. She was so blown away by the beauty of the artwork inside that she was literally moved to tears. The pages are gilded and the inside of the book reveals page after page of Virgin Mary art throughout history from paintings, to carvings, sculptures, etc. Truly a beautiful collection of work.
