This pre-renaissance image of a Madonna and child by Duccio di Buoninsegna (Italian, Sienese, 1255-1319) is a beautiful image for your gift. The gold background and incredible image of a beautiful Madonna in a black and gold dress and hair cover is holding a little man-child Christ in her arms. The Christ is reaching up to touch the Madonna's face. As like most of the images of Christ painted in this era, his proportions are all wrong -- he has a small head, receding hairline like an adult old man, and he's skinny. Proportionally, he was painted to look like a full-grown man, yet here he is -- he's a baby in momma's arms!
