\
My idea of a holy picture, like the ones we used to have when we were little with a contemporary feel to it. St Agnes of Rome (c. 291 – c.304 virgin–martyr) is often depicted carrying a little lamb.

She is the patron saint of chastity, gardeners, girls, engaged couples, rape victims, and virgins.

Read more about her here in Wikepedia and more in my recent journal here

the poem The Eve of St Agnes by John Keats (thanx to izzybeth for reminding me of it to include here)
