What Would You Do? Religious Installment

I found this at the Salvation Army Thrift Shop.  I love the flowing lines of it, but I can’t decide what to do with it:

Thrift Store Score Virgin Mary Statue


It has a beautiful, subtle iridescence and crackling that I would hate to cover up.  To paint it a funky color(orange, purple, pink…) seems sacrilegious or blasphemous.  Am I silly to feel that way?  Flat white would refresh it, but seems safe and boring because it’s my go to color.


What would you do?  Would you funk or freshen it up?  Maybe you wouldn’t have bought it in the first place?  Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, what’s yours?


What do you think?
