contemporary religious art - madonna and child
     This is an example of the contemporary religious art available at the Natural Abstraction Gallery. It's entitled Madonna and Child, and is a near abstract fine art photograph of a purple thistle and bud. The thorns, in a halo pattern around the bloom echo the crown of thorns, while the flower bud seems to lift and support the flower. There are many other flower and natural artworks in the galleries here, both religious and secular - or as secular as you can get and still create art.
