Our Lady Seat of Wisdom

Detail of mural by Vaclav Vaca at the Lady altar in St. Michael's Cathedral. Our Lady became (by supporting Jesus in her womb and later her arms and lap) a kind of throne for Wisdom Himself.

His Throne, thy bosom blest,
O Mother Undefiled –
That throne, if aught beneath the skies,
Beseems the Sinless Child.
