On this day which has passed there was much to think and celebrate the United States of America.

 

When I was trying to find one cultural object to explain the greatness of this land it was difficult.

 

Then I remembered the natural feel of this wood which had been lovingly carved.

 

Simply painted, not garish but realistic.

 

Aged well for over half a millenium had passed.

 

Glasped hands for a prayer faced upwards heavenly.

 

Then when I reflected I realised that it was easy to find an aptful object for here it was.

 

Lovely. USA. Great Majestic. Lovely

 

 

Nuestra Señora de los Dolores ca. 1675-1725
