Title: Holy Night
The Virgin Mary is depicted holding the Infant Jesus who is sleeping peacefully. The Virgin Mary is wearing a white garment with a vibrant blue cloak and a white veil. Her hair is a light golden brown pushed back over her ears then forming a pony tail which falls down in front of her right shoulder, and is held together by a white bow.
The background is a very dark and nebulous blue. To the upper left shining brightly is the Star of Bethlehem.
