Madonna of the Grape with Child: hand decorated ceramic panel inspired by La Vierge aux raisins by Pierre "le Romain" Mignard (1640-50).
Grapes in the Bible have many meanings: the vine is a sign of the Messiah and of those who follow it; moreover, the Virgin Mary is considered the fruitful vine par excellence.
Since the past, clay has been used to reproduce various reproductions of the Madonna of the Grape, which have been found in agricultural areas to protect the vineyards.
La Vecchia Faenza makes several interpretations of the Madonna of the Grape: look at the other too.
Dimensions: 47.5 x 31.5 cm, thickness 7 cm.
