  1. May we have the blessings !!!

  2. oh wow!! what a sight in a shopping mall! here you will ever only see a Madonna statue at a convent school or at one of the few and far between Catholic churches – South Africa is still very much a Calvinistic country. My collection keep the balance though! I love today and yesterday’s haiku that create such a wonderful backdrop to your photographs

  3. Thanks for sharing this bit of blue.

    Happy Blue Monday.

  4. Lovely ‘Our Lady’ ~ I love the many versions around the world ‘ ~ (A Creative Harbor) ^_^ on blogger ^_^

  5. What a gorgeous picture – the composition and colors are really fabulous!

    We could certainly use Mary of the Mercado during this season of shopping madness!

  6. yes, there is untold harm residing in most shopping pilgrimages! thank goodness the virgin is there reminding us all we really need is a compassionate heart!

  7. I’m awed at all the different Mary’s that are showing up with those who are participating with Rebecca. This one is just plain fine art beautiful.

  8. Very beautiful Virgin de Guadalupe and from the homeland state of both of my parents.


  9. in a mall? bravo, Mexico! The sight of Mary in our local mall would probably incite wrath on behalf of our Munsonians! That is, unless it were a part of an art display. And, as usual, I admire your haiku. 🙂

  10. I love how she is sheltered, and how visually, the angles of the staircase point the way to her. Lovely image. . . and haiku sentiment.

  11. A beautifully lit, beautifully crafted sculpture! So much feeling in the tilt of the figure’s head!

  12. A serene and calming influence in a busy environment.

  13. In sheltered alcove
    The sweet Madonna take steps
    To bless our shopping.


  14. Very nice! Love the sculpture and also the fact that Mary is there with the people. Thank you.

  15. I think I lost my last comment. Just beautiful and love that Mary is watching over everyone. Thank you.

  16. She is truly magnificent – I wish she were at our mall, keeping us from going wild! Beautiful, beautiful!

  17. Beautiful haiku and the carving of Mary is so exquisite.

  18. Nice photo and haiku
