This stunning Madonna & Child wall plaque is a unique rendition of the tender Our Lady of Perpetual Help icon. This wall plaque features the figures in slightly raised relief with the beautifully contrasting elements of blues and golds as well as a variety of textures, creating an overall stunning piece of Catholic art to be treasured in any home. The entire image is bordered with a turquoise blue arched frame reminiscent of a grotto, with ornate gold accents on the top and corners. The story of Our Lady of Perpetual Help icon is the story of the Christ child. The archangels Michael and Gabriel appear to the young Jesus, showing Him the instruments of the suffering He would one day endure. The Child Jesus flees to the only place a scared young boy would run---the loving arms of His mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary. Our Lady of Perpetual Help is a beautiful testament to the motherly love of Mary as well as the life mission of Christ, defending both his Humanity and Divinity. The original and miraculous Our Lady of Perpetual Help is a Byzantine style icon that now hangs in Rome under the care of the Redemptorists.
