Madonna dei fusi

Madonna dei fusi

The Mother of God seems surprised by the serenity with which her son plays with a spindle for wool. also called Aspo. The Aspo is a stick with two small perpendicular axes placed at the ends to wind the skeins of spun wool. Its shape recalls the cross, and for this reason in the representation it becomes the symbol of the sacrifice of Jesus. Behind the two, an infinite, divine, typically Leonardesque scenario.
