Merry Christmas.

Madonna with the Green Cushions (Maria Lactans), Andrea Solario, 1st quarter of 16th century, oil on wood, Musée du Louvre, Paris. (I just couldn't resist the adorable breastfeeding Jesus. Possibly Jesus breastfeeding as a toddler? Anyway, awesome.)


  1. that's pretty fab! merry happy to you and yours :)

  2. Awesome! Looks like he is also dining al fresco :)

  3. Yeah, somehow I have a feeling "lactans" doesn't quite translate to "with the green cushions." Chubby jesus baby! Merry Christmas!

  4. I like the idea of baby Jesus as a curly redhead too :-)
    Merry everything to you and your family xx

  5. OakRoseMama: What, you don't nurse your toddler totally nude on a nice velvet cushion?

    Rebecita: Yes, I think something was lost in translation there ...

    Thanks everyone! Hope you had a great Christmas! Joe is up to his eyes in things with wheels. :-)
