There were Christians at the end of the third century who were in possession of pictures of Christ, but the Church fathers looked with scorn upon this practice. Eusebius plainly says to the Empress Helena that "such images are forbidden by the Jewish law and should not be found in churches." He continues: "Some poor woman brought me two painted figures like philosophers, and ventured to say that they represented Paul and the Saviour—I do not know on what ground. But to save her and others from offence. I took them from her and kept them by me, not thinking it right, in any case, that she should exhibit them further, that we may not seem idolaters to carry our God about with us." (Carus P. The Open court, Volume 22. The Open Court Pub. Co., 1908. Original from Harvard University, Digitized Mar 14, 2008, pp. 663-664).

In other words, long after the apostles died, once non-biblical "Christianity" attained power, it allowed the veneration of images to develop. Shouldn't everyone associated with the Roman and Orthodox Catholic churches understand that there veneration of images is NOT consistent with the Bible or the practices of the "faith once for all delivered to the saints (Jude 3)?
Palestine ecclesiastical authorities of the fourth century still held to the idea of the prohibition of sacred images ... In fact, one half century before ... Eusebius, replying to Constance, a sister of Constantine, who had asked him for an image of the Savious, had written that to paint holy images was a pagan custom (PG 20,1545) (Bagatti, Bellarmino.

An additional note: for soul to believe the Preposterous "view" as professed by the proven "Brother" Michael Dimond, that the (promised at Fatima the Mother of God) glorious [Victory of the Church its enemies] has "ALREADY occurred" [during this horrendous CURRENT time of universal usurpation of God's sanctuaries and near total devastation to the (True) Church- due to the unrepentant sins of men against God for now] is incogitable.

Mary, like most Jewish women and girls of her time, would have spent most of her day working. Almost as soon as she could walk she would have been helping out with the many chores it took to keep daily life going. Stoves needed to be tended, beds needed to be made, homes need to be kept in repair, food needed to be prepared, animals needed to be tended whether one was on a farm or in a village. Food needed to be prepared for the future, so meat and vegetables needed to be preserved for future times as well. Water had to be drawn from cisterns and from wells. An incredible amount of work had to be done every day and it was done primarily by women and girls.

One of the important cities for Mary was Ephesus, where the goddess Diana was worshipped. It's not surprising that Mary drew upon the imagery associated with the goddesses, because that was the imagery the people knew.
