Kyrillos Veniadis
Madonna and Child The Madonna is wearing a cross combined with The Star of David.
The Madonna and Jesus are in the front of the painting and Jesus is holding a branch of olive tree the symbol of peace. Yet behind them there is upheaval, violence, war, anger, death and confusion, and in the midst of all that some are having fun enjoying making love and sex.
On top of the painting there are the quotes from the apocalypse "Those who have ears will hear".

Even though all is happening behind them, the Madonna and Jesus look as if they "see" in their mind's eyes what is occurring. Their look is calm but concerned.
