Alessandro Botticelli. Madonna of the Magnificat.
Madonna of the Magnificat - Baby Christ inspires Mary to write the Magnificat, her hymn of praise to the Lord. Two of the angels are crowning her as the Queen of Heavens. The crown consists of innumerable stars; they are an illusion to the stella matutina (morning star), one of the Virgin's names in contemporary hymns devoted to Mary
