Raphael's Madonna of the Chair Microphotograph

Here I am holding the WORLD'S SMALLEST micro photograph of Raphael's "The Madonna of the Chair". In this famous painting, created in the year 1514, the Virgin Mary is shown holding the infant Jesus, while a young John the Baptist looks on. This image is so small, that it cannot be seen with the human eye. It can only be seen through a microscope (shown enlarged, inset). A beautiful example of how 19th century (1800's) scientists and technicians proclaimed Jesus Christ through their work. God Bless You ... Today and Every Day! AND ... Love each another, just as Jesus loves YOU!
