You will need to give our members more information. The image appears to have been altered, but how and when? Who, or what is "Zero Thomas". The image of woman, apparently a Catholic Nun at prayer is a common meme in Western Art since around the late 15th century. The media used could be oil, or maybe not. Why do you believe this is a copy of some more famous work? The writing is indecipherable, and I suspect that the image came from a decorated skate board. Why not ask the person who did the decoration?

Its from a series of skateboards that took famous artwork and 'vandalised' it, i recognised the birth of venus and the mona lisa, 'Zero' and 'Thomas' are just brand related things and all my googling has come up nil

The problem with the figure of Virgin Mary is that it was standard. That representation comes from 17th century [look at the hands] and I would say it's Italian.

My guess is "Virgin Mary" by Giovanni Battista Salvi da Sassoferrato [called "Sassoferrato"], 17th century [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giovan...a_Sassoferrato].

Alpin Luke, one of our finest researchers. Alpin's image does not include the rosery of stars, nor the bloody tears, but the original we are told was desecrated, so it is a strong possible.

I'd say that is the one
Look at the horizontal strip of red in the original just above her clavicle
It is represented the same in the skateboard just not red
