I’ve photographed this Virgin Mary statue previously, but still find her to be an astounding piece of artwork. When I drive past the graveyard in Emmaus, I can always see her head well above all the other modest grave stones. I think she is beautiful, even in her slight decay, and I’m finding that different times of day and different weather conditions really capture “Mary” in a whole new light. (Look at this picture of the same statue from a year ago when snow was on the ground:: Snowy Mary Statue.)
Here’s how I found her in the early afternoon on Jan 21.
