Madonna of Ears/Maria im Ährenkleid by an unknown artist, Salzburg, ca.1490 | Madonna of Ears (ca. 1450, Tyrol) is a type of depiction of Mary in a dress decorated with golden wheat ears "as the fertile soil and untilled field of God called to bear fruit, a symbol for her virginal motherhood. Another socio-cultural source for this rare iconographical motif may be found in Demeter whose attribute was the blade of wheat, symbol of fertility." Text by Sister M. Danielle Peters)
