Art deco Madonna and Child, Florence

I walk by this lovely sculpture about 2x every day, and half the time I am so busy looking down at the cobblestones so I don’t trip that I don’t even look up and see it.

But when I do look up at the palazzo, it repays me with its beauty.  I love the rendering of the time-worn subject but here treated with art deco forms.  So lovely.





The inscription underneath reads: A Maria Per La Pace, Le Donne Cristiane (to Maria of the Peace, the Christian women).
