Holy Family with Three Hares

This is a timeless Christian artwork and a heartwarming representation of Mary, Joseph, and the infant Christ. Here, Christ and his mother sit in an idyllic bucolic landscape – a stream, village, and rolling hills fill the background. Angels give Mary an honorary crown, while Joseph looks on reverently. Pictured on her lap and at the center of the image, the infant Christ looks down and holds the Holy Bible. Albrecht Durer has carefully composed an endearing image of the Holy Family that also pays homage to their sacred role.
