Weekly Photo Challenge: Purple

I took this photo while visiting The Bowers Museum of Cultural Art, in Santa Ana, CA.  I found this portrait to be warm and intimate, touching and sincere, and breathtakingly beautiful.  The purple shawl reflects many things, but for me it represents the unconditional love and protection a mother feels towards her child.
