Albrecht Durer : “The Virgin with a Starry Crown” (1508)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

Dürer made four engravings of the Virgin and Child standing on a crescent moon. These devotional images link the Madonna with the pregnant Woman of the Apocalypse from the 12th book of Revelation. The verse says that “a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars…” appeared in heaven, delivering a son to conquer Satan — a prefiguration of Christ.
