At the center in Ecuador, there were interesting artwork. This one piece was on Our Lady of Guadalupe. The little pieces of mosaic tiles formed a wonderful depiction of Virgin Mary. In my head, I instantly thought of Gustav Klimt's painting "Three Ages of Women." I didn't know the title until recently, but the image of the young mother bending her neck to be closer with child is one of my favorite art pieces.

Our Lady of Guadalupe:

Gustav Klimt: Three Ages of Women

I wonder if either artists were inspired by the other...
