The common representations of the Sorrowful Mother is that of Virgin Mary with seven swords piercing her symbolizing her Seven Sorrows. The first sorrow refers to the prophecy of Simeon that she will be pierced through the heart. The other six sorrows, each represented by a sword, for her suffering during Christ's life: the Flight into Egypt, the lost Child Jesus in the temple, the meeting of Jesus and Mary on the way of the Cross, the crucifixion, the descent from the cross and the burial of Jesus. She may also be represented contemplating the Instruments of the Passion of Christ: the cross, the nails,crown of thorns etc.
