Are Madonna-and-child images derived from pagan representations of goddesses?

Question:

Aren&#039;t the images of Mary with the baby Jesus taken from pagan representations of goddesses with children? If not, how do you explain the fact that so many cultures have woman-with-child images in their religion?<br /> <br />
