Birth and death are inextricably linked.
Though Mary, after death, is spiraling upwards into the divine light, there is such a feeling of joy and birth in this painting.
When I was in labour with my son, there was a moment when I felt the door between life and death was wide open. It was such an indescribably beautiful feeling.
Four years later, when I asked my son where we go after we die, he answered, "Silly, just where I came from!"
