If you want to help set a Rosary mind-set for yourself or others, this beautiful "Portrait of a Girl Saying the Rosary" can give you something lovely and decorative as well as something spiritual. The young woman is praying her rosary with fervor. You can tell she's in a church because the item on the wall next to her is a censor, used to swoosh incense and bless inside a church. You can also tell by the intense focus of her gaze that she has her eyes on at least a representation of Mary or her Lord, and it seems to us more likely that she is looking at a tabernacle with the Blessed Sacrament. Either way, she is clearly deep in prayer with her focus on Heaven.

Irish-born Alfred Elmore (1815-1881) was a popular British history and genre painter. His subject's facial expressions seem masterfully perfect to us. He also has a painting called "The Novice" we hope to list someday. He was a devout Catholic, and you can see it in this painting. It is inspiring for us to see the image of someone transported in their prayer.

** IMPORTANT ** The image is smaller than the paper! There is a white border of about 0.5" inch for 5x7", 1.3" for 8.5x11, or 1.6" for 11x14" pictures. The border gives the prints a finished look, and lets them look good in frames without using a matt.
