Luca della Robbia gave us the Virgin and Child in a niche, c. 1460, recently exhibited in the Louvre. This really special gift unto God of a Springtime Child in the Renaissance is attributed through the heart of man and the inner goddess self of Luca della Robbia. His sculptures do have another quality that his then family siblings did not require. You imagine he would not have a wife and was probably a really intense human being, working day and night to evaluate this level of prowess next to the rest of the della Robbia company still in existence. The company of other Virgins this piece surrounded in the exhibition at the Louvre were also in reference and just as heart speak. God bless.
