This antique, circa 1800s engraving is on laid paper. It depicts the Virgin Mary and commemorates the miraculous event when the painting of the Madonna del Duomo began to move its eyes before those praying for a respite from the Napoleonic invasion.
The text directly below the image reads: Regina Sanctorum Omnium, which means Queen of All Saints. The text at the bottom of the image reads, in translation:
Image of the Blessed Virgin Mary venerated in the Cathedral Church of S. Ciriaco d 'Ancona which, with an unprecedented portent on 25 June 1796, moved her eyes for the first time, and on 13 May 1814 she was crowned by Pius the VII.
The engraving is approximately 3.5" x 3.5" and has creasing in the corners as well as significant foxing.
