Found Madonnas

San Francisco may be one of the least Christian cities in the country, but the archetype of the Madonna, the Mother with infant embodying both potentiality and pain, still turns up powerfully on our streets. I encountered these three while Walking San Francisco. Click to enlarge.

One of San Francisco's Benny Bufano scupltures

She was stenciled on a sidewalk.

I see Iraq and Syria in this, but I do not know the artist's intent.
