She is portrayed with white hair to symbolize her virginity.  (Luke 1: 26-27) “Outer space” is dripping to represent the anointing of the heavens.  There is a candle inside of her to represent the hope that she would carry inside of her.  The three Fisher Price toys are symbols of the life of Christ that she witnesses: infant-hood, childhood, and adulthood. “But His mother treasured all these things in her heart.  And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” Luke 2:51-52
