Mary as Model to Empty Oneself

This haunting picture claims to be a "metallic figurine of the Virgin Mary and baby Jesus." I ran across it looking for an illustration for a book review I wrote for Ignitum Today.

Clearly, there is no Mary in this picture. She's a hollow shell holding the infant Jesus. All we see of her is her cloak wrapped around the Babe.

What does this say about Mary? What does this say about all mothers? What does this say about being a disciple of Jesus?

Sorry, more questions than answers today.

Magnificent by U2 inspired by the Magnificat
