I've always been fascinated by the Virgin Mary, even though I was raised in a church where she was only mentioned at Christmastime and then only about twice. I was intrigued by the presence of a woman in such a male dominated religion and at the abundance of art produced in her honor; works that range from beautiful to gaudy to just plain strange. This is a community to post any and all things related to the Virgin Mary. It can be original artwork, found artwork, people dressed up like Mary, strange Mary merchandise, articles--whatever. It can be comical or serious, however I'd like to lean away from the super-religious-church-dogma rhelm, but if you're worried about it being offensive, please put it behind a cut with a warning. Also, if you have a ton of photos or something that's very long, put it behind a cut.
