Leonardo da Vinci – Virgin and Child with St. Anne (c. 1503)

Leonardo […] envisioned a female Trinity […] The angle of Mary’s knee points to the oval shape created by her arms. In the group of three feet, the one on the far left creates a mirror image of Mary’s right foot. Finally, in the heart of the construction, the curves of Mary’s body draw the angles toward an ellipse that points to Jesus, who completes the curve by turning his head. He is aided by the lamb, who reinforces this backward gaze […] [T]he Louvre canvas depicts the source of the history of Christianity as mutual mirror-effects.

– Julia Kristeva, New Maladies of the Soul (1995).
