"Mary, Star of the Sea" by Michael Genova

from 38.00

Artist: Michael Genova
Title: Mary, Star of the Sea
Medium: Acrylic and metallic leaf


"Mary means 'Star of the sea', for as mariners are guided to port by the ocean star, so Christians attain to glory through Mary's maternal intercession." -St. Thomas Aquinas

The stone block Mary sits on has a carving of a segmented serpent signifying the triumph over evil which Christ would attain. The twelve stars around Mary's head represent the twelve apostles and at her feet the white lilies symbolize her purity. In the decorative border at the top and bottom the Latin text reads, "Stella Maris", "Sancta Maria Mater Dei" which translates to, Star of the Sea, Holy Mary Mother of God.
