With this portrait I want to show an unknown image of Mary. We have almost always seen her with a young physique. In some depictions of Christ during his maturity, Mary often appears almost the same age as her son. I wanted to give the portrait sincerity, far from artifice. I think that in truth lies the authentic beauty.
