The Virgin Mary on the Wall

Walking around Rome and Florence I came across the Virgin Mary's icon or sculpture depicted on various walls in countless places. This reminds the tourist and the passer-by how Italian culture goes together with the Christian religion. In a way they seem to inspire a relationship between mankind and the Mother of God, reminding us all of the heavenly Kingdom and how, even though we lead busy lives, there is always time to pray, even when we are walking around, getting from A to B.
