Another Sunday Special

I thought I would do another Sunday Religious Special as we saw this amazing shrine to the Virgin Mary in Parque Omar yesterday. Parque Omar is a bit like Rouken Glen Park in Glasgow, Scotland – full of children’s playgrounds and lovely walks. It also houses a large swimming pool and the National Library. Parts of this shrine reminded me of the work of the Spanish Architect Gaudi. This is the back view.

And this is the front – pretty spectacular I think! The inscription reads ‘Dulce corazon de Maria’ – ‘Sweet Heart of Mary’.

One of the angels beside the statue was so pretty that I couldn’t resist including a picture of her alone. The expression on her face is so gentle – a beautiful work of art.

This shrine also had fairy lights draped around it, so I imagine it is pretty amazing looking in the dark – maybe I’ll go back one evening and take some more pictures!
