  1. I really like this! I do have a question though - why do they always draw (write) the heads so big?

  2. It's lovely and captures the endearing beauty of the Immaculata and her Immaculate Heart! :>

  3. Angela - yes this is particularly over-sized. But I've always understood it is due to the head covering, coif, and or hair wrap beneath the veil. Muslim women sometimes have this appearance as well. I wouldn't be surprised however if some exotic symbolism has now been attributed to it.
