Day 6 A Virgin A Day ....

Day 6 of A Virgin A Day ... which I joined here at Rebecca's blog

Today I feature a statue once owned and loved .... that touched me in a special way ... missed gazing at the statue "live" .... but am happy that it went to lovely lady from Colorado who loved her as much as moi.... as Thomas Acquinas once said...

"Man should not consider his material possessions his own, but as common to all, so as to share them without hesitation when others are in need." -- Thomas Aquinas

Sedes Sapientiae is Latin for the Seat of Wisdom.... known commonly as Our Lady of Wisdom... very rare old Madonna....but v fabulous.... don't we all need divine wisdom? hands raised? my hands are up....

Sedes Sapientiae, Ora Pro Nobis.
Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom, pray for us.


  1. I follow a Native American spiritual path for the mnost part in my own life. Thomas Aquinas' quote is what the Elders have been teaching me for years. We borrow everything tomn use until someone else needs it. Awesome advice to live by.
    This old piece is exquisite. Our Lady of Wisdom is needed by everyone. My habd is up as well.


  2. Beautiful statue and yes 'old is beautiful' ~ wonderful photos and words ~ blessings to you and thanks, namaste, Carol (A Creative Harbor) Happy AVD with Corazon ^_^

  3. i just have to tell you, my prior comment moderation word was 'bless'...

  4. Not to be irreverent or anything, but this Madonna really could be an exquisite chess queen!

    My Lady Comfort

  5. every time i come to your site i see this statue of mary and child as your banner and my heart sighs. i look and then come back to gaze some more. truly she speaks to me so deeply. everything about her and her baby. oh how blessed you are to have held her and felt her gaze upon you.

  6. There is a sacred and holy silence about her, a peace that fills the heart just looking at her face and her embrace of her baby son. She is utterly beautiful. Thank you for sharing her with us.
    Peace and Light,

  7. thank you so much for all your lovely comments... this statue is for you if you love the nurturing gaze...i truly believe that if a statue can evoke those emotions of awe, beauty and inspire you to faith... it would have achieved its purpose ... and like art ... i believe this statue is worthy of the term "sculpture" ... just wanted to share that i am so in love with another fabulous statue of a sainte right now .... actually it is done by a french sculptor in the 1800s! it is truly fabulous and awe-inspiring but i do not own her ... :)... hugs to all of you ... so blessed to know you through a virgin a day!
