The Virgin with the Child Jesus is one of the principal themes of Christian iconography. It depicts the Virgin Mary with the Child Jesus, his son. After some initial resistance and controversy, the formula “Mother of God” (Theotokos) was officially adopted by the Christian church at the Council of Ephesus, 431. The first performance of Virgin with Child can be preserved mural painting in catacomb of Priscilla, Rome, in which the Virgin appears seated suckling the child, which in turn turns his head to look at viewer.
