To me, Easter always brings thoughts of renewal and restoration. I simply adore this photo of a Vatican nun repairing a tapestry designed by Raphael. It is so rich with symbolism. The subject of Christ, the gentle, loving hands of the nun, the gold threads of repair, and even the pierced heart shaped pincushion; all lovely reminders of what Easter is all about.
This photo was taken by James L. Stanfield and is included in the National Geographic book, Inside the Vatican, 1991.
Happy Easter Wishes to you and yours, dear bloggy friends!
