Known in her German homeland as "Maria Knotenlö;serin," this beautiful sacred image by Catholic master painter Johann Schmidtner was inspired by a real German family's story of marital disunity, struggle, intercession, and powerful reconciliation. Discovered and then expanded into a Marian devotion in the 1980's by then-Father Jorge Mario Bergoglio, "Mary, Undoer of Knots" is a favorite devotion of Pope Francis himself, and continues to spread throughout the world due to his influence. Our image of the original "Mary, Undoer of Knots" has undergone professional digital restoration to remove the effects of 300 years of aging and candle-smoke. ~Sizes listed are of the print only~ Solid wood, deluxe gold frames and premium stretcher bars support our breathtaking giclee religious canvases. Giclee is a french word that means "sprayed ink," and it refers to our museum-quality printing process whereby 8 different colored inks combine to create millions of colors that are slowly sprayed into canvas material. This high-tech method of art reproduction offers the highest possible fidelity to the original work and results in a clear depiction with colors as good (or sometimes better) than the original painting. Under archival conditions, giclee canvases have a total color fidelity guarantee for 70-100 years. For the faithful Catholic that wishes their sacred art to be blessed with holy water: canvases are sparingly water repellant, so while a typical blessing should not damage the canvas, those who favor more robust uses of holy water should take caution near the art.
