Fine Art Friday #4

I only recently came across this image - although once I did, I started seeing/reading about it in a number of places.

She is called "Mary, the Undoer of Knots" and she is a patroness of marriage. This painting was done by Johann Melchior Georg Schmittdner around 1700. The knots she is untying are thought to be those of discord and difficulty in a marriage.
