This masterpiece by António Vieira was made in the 17th century in oil on canvas.
The members of the Holy Family are depicted in an domestic setting, doing everyday tasks - the Virgin is embroidering, St. Joseph is occupied with carpentry jobs, and the Child Jesus e sweeping carefree next to a dozing cat.
The lilies in the vase placed next to the Virgin symbolize Her pristine purity.
