In the artist's words: "The subject is a marble statue depicting the Virgin Mary and her child. I took this photo because it was beyond beautiful to behold. The way the light was coming from the window was perfectly lighting up the statue and not much else. I was dumbstruck when I came upon this scene, I was not sure if I even wanted to take a picture of it or just take it in with my own eyes. This photo is meaningful to me because I believe that I was meant to see this on my trip to Ireland and that I was meant to share this moment with others."
