Title:Wisdom Mural
Notes:

This mural painting in the Library of Congress of Wisdom as a strong, lovely young woman, echoes the text of the Wisdom of Solomon:

"For she is a reflection of eternal light, a spotless mirror of the working of God, and an image of his goodness. Although she is but one, she can do all things, and while remaining in herself, she renews all things; in every generation she passes into holy souls and makes them friends of God, and prophets; for God loves nothing so much as the person who lives with wisdom. She is more beautiful than the sun, and excels every constellation of the stars. Compared with the light she is found to be superior, for it is succeeded by the night, but against wisdom evil does not prevail. She reaches mightily from one end of the earth to the other, and she orders all things well. " -- Wisdom of Solomon 7:26 - 8:1
