I have absolutely no interest in religious beliefs, but I can still appreciate the beauty of religious icons. There is an aura of calmness and serenity to them, and drama in the right setting. I can also appreciate artistic representation of the ideas and beliefs that so many people hold dear.
I like the IR rendering of this image, the textures of the statue, and the cloud formations in the background. I love the hope in the face of the statue, and the symbolism of the bird on her hand.
