Cool fact about mom
Did ya’ll know that Mary is usually depicted in blue because during the Byzantine era, red and purple were largely used to suggest royalty. But, a new art technique allowed blue pigment to be made for the first time, along with gold pigment, so Mary was given the “honor” of blue. Then it transformed into this symbolism of white for purity and blue for transcendence (because it is the color of the sky- where Jesus and her were raised up). And over time the blue was made lighter to suggest tenderness.
I love mom.
