Carlo Crivelli: Madonna and Child
Madonna and Child
Object type painting
English: This is a small devotional image. Reminding Mantegna's paintings there are peaches and figs above Mary. Their Christian symbolical meanings relate to the story of Christ: Redemption (peach) and Fertility (fig). On the parapet are the pink or carnation, symbol of the Passion of Christ while violets are Marian flowers enhancing the Virgin's humility and purity. The fly on the parapet far right, represents evil, justifying the sacrifice of Christ.
