Antonia Rolls' "Breast-Feeding Madonna"
Antonia Rolls' "Breast-Feeding Madonna" is such a marvelous take on "Maria Lactans" (with her breasts in the right place) that I had to post it here along with a link to the rest of Antonia Rolls' religious art.

Other examples of the type show Mary's breasts located in non-typical places presumably so as to discourage salacious thoughts.
