Madonna in the Chinese Earthquake


I read about an officer and mother who has a 6 month old baby in China, but breastfed as many as 9 infants during the whole disaster. She is really an inspiration and when I saw her picture, I instantly thought of the Virgin Mary. Her selfless and prompt behavior and maternal instinct really moved me to do this piece. I will be setting up an option to buy the image (in high res) with 100% of the proceeds to go to the China Relief fund at The Red Cross. More on that later.
