Footnotes

  • The Virgin Mary is often depicted with her foot on a crescent moon, a symbol of virginity. Such images are often taken from Revelation Chapter 12, Verse 1, 'And a great sign appeared in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars'.
