Queen of heaven

An occasion on which a Western woman is likely to wear a veil is on her wedding day. Veils covering the hair and face became a symbolic reference to the virginity of the bride thereafter. A bride may wear the face veil through the ceremony. Then either her father lifts the veil, presenting the bride to her groom, or the groom lifts the veil to symbolically consummate the marriage.”

By combining a symbol of virginity with her pregnant belly, we get a bizarre message about the babies being conceived without sexual relations – not unlike the Virgin Mary.

Beyoncé’s Grammy performance went even deeper into Virgin Mary symbolism while emphasizing the concept of immaculate conception.
