Inspired by the work “Madonna dei Fusi (Madonna of the Yarnwinder)” by Leonardo DaVinci.

The painting shows the Virgin Mary seated in a landscape with the Christ child, who gazes at a yarnwinder used to collect spun yarn. The yarnwinder reflects both as a symbol of Mary's domesticity and as a foreshadowing of the Cross on which Christ was crucified.

The work is in ternary form with an introductory section. It depicts Jesus Christ’s life, a foreshadowing of the crucifixion and the suffering to come, and a lullaby. Imagine each scene and musically express Mary’s corresponding emotional state.
