Of this Mother Mary painting, Elizabeth Clare Prophet said:
"This is that 400-year-old painting that was in the home of Maria Treben, the Austrian herbalist who has prayed before Mother Mary in this picture and received many herbal remedies and cures which she has put forth in the book, "Health Through God's Pharmacy." I thought it appropriate for this image of the Mother to be on this book of Pearls*, and I hope you make it your own."
