Your mother painted this... and on velvet. That is so cool. It looks more active than the original...with the decided swirls in the background and on the clothing. The face and hands are painted so memorably, too. She was very careful about the details, too. You can see the sleeping Apostles in the background. It occurred to me how "doloroso" the scene has to be, and I think the painting reflects that mood, as well. Thanks.
