Blue Mary

Check out the latest addition to my Reference Links list over in the sidebar: American Antiquarian Society. I found it earlier this morning via Letterology. I've just started browsing there, and came across a lovely image of "The Sorrowful Mother" which I have displayed above. It reminds me so much of a religious card I found a few years ago in a dump book, which I used to create a collage titled Mary Quilt, now in the collection of my friend Gail.

Here's a link to another version I just found on eBay. Can anyone explain the significance of the finger tip?

OK, I found a bit of information here.
