The Assumption of the Virgin



My friend and champion Maureen Doallas, chose this painting from 1998 for the cover of her collection of poems and essays.
"Neruda`s Memoirs" is published by T. S. Poetry Press.
The title refers to the Catholic belief that Mary didn`t die but rose bodily into heaven. In the images throughout history, she is seen standing on a cloud.
