All About Mary

Japanese Madonnas

These four pictures of the Japanese Madonna are all part of a work called a kakejiku (hanging picture). Within a fold-out frame, there is a place to display one of the pictures at a time. The four pictures of the Blessed Mother and the Holy Child are to be interchanged according to the traditional "viewing" seasons.
