The image was created in 1950, by Mother Margaret Mary Nealis R.S.C.J. (1876- 1957). Called "Quemadmodum Gallina" latin for Just Like a Hen, the painting shows Christ as a young boy gently handing a baby chick back to the Mother Hen. Mother Nealis did this painting late in her life.

The back of the card features artist attribution as well as the noted bible verse from the front image:
The Gospel of Matthew 23:37 - The Lament over Jerusalem. "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how many times I yearned to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her young under her wings, but you were unwilling!" (verse is printed on the back cover of the card).
