MADONNA and CHILD Part #7

In our last of the Madonna and Child series we bring you baby Jesus, but not with his mother Mary. Depicted here Jesus is being held by Saint #Antonio, whom Diego was named after. Diego painted it in the “Madonna dei Termini” church in 1951. More on the story of it’s discovery below.
