Jesus among the Doctors by Albrecht Dürer 

    Another painting of Dürer's series on The Seven Sorrows of Mary. Dürer blends his own contemporary Renaissance time period with the early New Testament era. Scrolls become books. Clothing is a mixture of both times and cultures giving the painting a universal dimension. The wreath of faces encircling the young Jesus presents a microcosm of not only those confronted with him, but of all people of all times and all places.
