The mantilla in art

The mantilla has been depicted in paintings very beautifully. 
These paintings show real femininity and humility. 
May we always wear our mantillas with reverence and piety, knowing we are doing so for the glory of God and so He can increase and we can decrease.

A lady at prayer.

Enshrouding the face to enable concentration in prayer.

A more traditional style mantilla.

Beautiful red veil.

  1. What a lovely blog. With so many demeaning images of women on the web it's wonderful to see women portrayed as they here: beautiful in their modesty. BBC.
