Madonna Of The Pigeons
Oil on board - 50 x 40cm - $5,500
Italy has an abundance of religious sculptures, especially the Madonna. I am always intrigued that the pigeons do not have much reverence for religious figures. This Madonna is in Piazza Del Campo, the main piazza in the centre of Siena, where the famous Palio is held each year. I loved the absolute disregard the pigeons had for this Madonna and the children.
