In this "black over blue" block print, we see a line drawing of the Madonna seated on a tree stump with the Christ Child in her lap. She sits barefoot in a simple long dress. The tree stump has sprouted two new branches, one on either side of the seated pair. The stump is otherwise bare. (Monica Jensen 04/15/93)
