The Virgin Mary Breastfeeding Jesus Infant - Nursing Madonna
This is a rare image where you can see Mary's breast shedding drops of her milk. Notice also that Jesus has an adult face, not a baby face.
This painting is exposed at the Casa Nacional de Moneda museum in Potosí (Bolivia). If you know its origin or have more information, please post a comment or email me.
The Nursing Madonna, or Madonna Lactans is a Christian iconography of the Madonna and Child in which the Virgin Mary is shown breastfeeding the infant Jesus. For more info about the Nursing Madonna, read en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nursing_Madonna.
