A carved walnut statuette of the Virgin and Child in the Museum's collection was likely made in the early fifteenth century in Burgundy, France, or in the southern Netherlands. In this work, the Virgin cradles the nursing child in her lap while he gives benediction with his right hand. The unusual depiction of the Christ child both nursing and blessing conveys a domestic tenderness that became increasingly evident in the cult of the Virgin. Originally painted, such statuettes would have been incorporated into small devotional shrines within the home. The Museum's graceful reproduction of the statuette was created with a combination of three-dimensional imaging and traditional sculpture techniques. The bottom of the reproduction is lined with felt.
