St Anne

St Anne was the mother of Mary and thereby Jesus's grand-mother. Her husband was Joachim.

The story goes that they could not have children and Joachim was so depressed about it as his mates were mocking him for his lack of offspring that God granted them Anne.

My Anne came from the cover of a magazine in a roundabout way but I made here more doll like and tweaked a few things to circumvene the fact that I do not actually know that person and I am running out of friends. I had never heard of that Anne: as I do not own a TV I miss out on a lot of contemporary iconing.
In any case her dog is fantastic and being held like a baby, it reminded me of the story of St Anne, who nowdays would probably tell Joachim to get over it.
