Madonnas and children

Some more examples of Mosan art from the Grand Curtius. As you can see, Madonna and Child is one of the most recurring themes.

love the shadows in the first. & the expression of the Madonna in the second.
Are these wood sculptures?

Wonderful variations on the theme.

These are so interesting. I like the naive quality to them, yet the poses are so natural. I am curious about the ball, I don't recall seeing that in other region's Madonna and Child.
