Our Antique Immaculate Heart desk shrine is the perfect meditative and devotional gift of choice. With its beautiful imagery and elegant white marble or gilded gold leaf finish, this Antique Immaculate Heart desk shrine will adorn your home for years to come.
Taken from a vitage print, this picture elegantly highlights Mary's reign and glory through her Sorrowful (the sword piercing her Heart) and Immaculate (the roses) Heart. "Behold, the Kingdom of God is within you" (Luke 17:21). One hand is holding a sprig of lilies and the other hand points to her Heart: she reigns through her great purity of heart - and it is through her Immaculate Heart that we too become pure. Mary is depicted in her Heavenly ardor and in a garment with gold trim and jewels, befitting of the Queen of Heaven and earth. Mary, our Mother and Queen, has come to lead us into her Son's Heart, to lead us to and prepare us for the Kingdom of God.
The shrine itself is produced with stonecast alabaster which originates from the mineral gypsum, a highly regarded building and decorating medium that has been used since the time of ancient Egypt and boasts an attractive smooth finish.
It measures roughly 5 1/2in x 8in, including the 4in x 6in inset image plaque. The back of the shrine features a secured easel for standing and a simple metal hook for hanging.
