St Mary's Cathedral, Lights of Christmas

These images on the facade of St Mary's Cathedral on College Street were part of the annual Lights of Christmas, a light projection show that runs from 8th December to 25th December. These images of the Madonna and Child featured in this show are a series of Renaissance period artworks currently on display at the National Gallery in the nation's capital city, Canberra. These Renaissance works are 15th and 16th century Italian paintings, by masters such as Bellini, Botticelli, Titian and Raphael which are normally on display at the Accademia Carrara in Bergamo, Italy.
