"Low Country Madonna" (11"x10" watercolor with pen and ink on rag paper, signed and dated) is one of many Langley variations on the theme: "the Virgin of Humility" in which the mother of Jesus is portrayed upon the ground or closely associated with the earth. The term humility itself is from the Latin humus, meaning earth and historically esteemed by christians as an indispensable disposition for union with God.  

The painting featured here was commissioned by Guest House in 2011 and is itself a variation on another Langley design for glass mosaic commissioned for the Lumen Christi Chapel, St James Parish, Savannah Georgia, USA.  As a geographic term lowcountry commonly refers to the intercoastal region of South Carolina and Georgia.
