Very few representations of down-to-earth events such as pregnancy and childbirth in the Bible. With two exceptions, however: the extaordinary conception of the Virgin Mary, and the Nativity of Jesus. Several reprsentations also of the Birth of the Virgin Mary and Saint Jean the Baptist.(see under Nativity)
In between, the famous scene of the Visitation, very much painted during the Renaissance (see under Europe Renaissance for more paintings)
Nothing, until now, about our "mother of all mothers" Eve... She delivered two sons, so she must have been pregnant at least twice. We found one dessin from Rodin.
The Virgin-tabernacle represented here is part odf a Tryptic by Jacobo del Fiore
