This 3/4 life-size bronze sculpture reveals Our Lady in her youth, barely out of childhood. This is Mary, young, devout, trusting. This is Mary whom the angel calls, “full of grace,” Mary who accepts God's will that will change her life and the history of mankind forever. Her face is full of innocence and peace. Her extended hands are both delicate and strong. The angel tells Mary, “Do not be afraid,” and Mary reaches out to us with the same message, “Do not be afraid to follow my Son!”
