Blessings on This House

 

There is a religious plaque next to almost every door in Malta, usually of Mary/Joseph with baby Jesus.

This one is the smallest (maybe 2" max) and most unusual of all the ones I saw.

Cette coutume est surprenante.
Ginnie Hart: It's a Roman Catholic country, Martine, so in that regard I guess it's NOT surprising?

I think baby Jesus is on a coffee break, Ginnie...
Ginnie Hart: Or maybe Joseph had taken him to the playground?
That is so amazing, Ginnie! Wonderful shot!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. Lots to wonder about here!
Just amazing Ginnie! Well spotted.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. It really did catch my eye!

A wonderful picture and such a strong connection with the Roman Catholic faith. I wonder though why did they not replace/repair the broken, I assume, Jesus. To be beheaded is not the best thing that can happen to you. In my eyes impossible to keep it this way. It would bother me to see this every day entering the door.
Ginnie Hart: It was definitely one of those "I wonder!" moments, MLMA. I still wonder?!

I doubt if this was the result of vandalism, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Lisl. The weather in Malta (with the salty sea and Sahara-like winds) wreaks havoc on Malta buildings!
bien vu!! superbes détails!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.

An amazing feature Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: When you see all the other beautiful plaques, Chris, you'll be even more amazed by this one!

Yes, this is very special - I saw Mary statues with baby Jesus in Belgium, Den Bosch, Poland ... wherever Catholic people live.
Ginnie Hart: It makes me want to know the story behind this one, Philine!

Une belle œuvre d'artiste
JP
Ginnie Hart: So simple and sweet, JP.
An interesting detail Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I, too, found it so, Bill.
