Beautiful and theological, this cosmic German holy card from the late 19th Century has Mary with the Holy Trinity. Mary and the baby Jesus are bordered by a Latin inscription which reads, Egredietur virga de radice Iesse et flos de radice eius ascendet. It is Isaiah 11:1 and means, A shoot will spring from the tree of Jesse, a new shoot will grow from his roots.

'Virga' means 'green twig' or 'shoot' (sometimes translated 'rod') and is related to the word Virgo, or virgin. The artist further plays on this association by having the tree of Jesse that Mary and Jesus are "sprouting" from be full of roses, for Mary.

B. Kühlen & M. Gladbach are the publishers. Artist is anonymous.

Before and After Images show how fussy our restorations are.

The print is really sharp, and the colors are rich. The holy card is long out of copyright and is now in the public domain. We print it on special art paper with archival quality pgiments, rated to last for many generations without fading when kept out of the direct sun.

Standard size. Easy to find a ready-made frame at your local Hobby Lobby. If you're sending this as a gift and would like us to frame it for you, please convo and we'll make special arrangements for you.
** 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. All Approx! Fine art printers do this because the images are almost never the same rectangular ratio of the standard paper sizes. It also gives the prints a finished look, and lets them look good in a frame without a matt.

- Acid-free paper
- Archival pigments, rated to last for generations.
- Cardboard backer
- Above story of the art
- Enclosed in a tight-fitting, crystal clear bag.

Thanks for your interest!
