Complete Set of Each of the Four Movements of The Joyous Mysteries
by Betony Coons
The artist borrows several conventions with historical weight to represent the angel visiting Mary: the rose, the moon, even the color blue have been associated with Mary’s iconography for centuries. Notice the bird imagery hovering around Mary, evoking the Holy Spirit and notice just how young Mary is, embarking on this enormous life change at probably 12-14.

Mary visits her relative, Elizabeth, who will give birth to John the Baptist. And the baby leaps for joy in Elizabeth’s womb upon hearing Mary, the mother of Jesus’, voice. The story gives us a foreshadowing of these two men’s friendship. The two skulls can represent the duality of Mary and Elizabeth, Jesus and John. The circle in the center of the piece implies several things but especially a womb and an abstract river, showcasing John the Baptist’s future calling.

Water is enormous as a metaphor. It’s absolutely necessary for life. It’s cleansing and used in baptism. It can be destructive and flood entire cities. The artist saw the totality of water in this pristine white, ready for your story, cut-paper piece. Nothing less that water could represent the historical moment of the nativity, God born into humanity and now with us.

As was the custom, the baby Jesus was presented at the temple to be circumcised. Upon holding the child, Simeon, an older priest, states he may now pass away because he has seen the messiah. Notice the single flower that emanates a light that darkness cannot touch. The encroaching black will not overtake the fragile beauty that has been given us and death itself is simply an overturned, upside-down skull, upon which life flourishes.
