Mary Untier of Knots or Mary Undoer of Knots is the name of both a Marian devotion and a Baroque painting. 

The painting, executed in the Baroque style by Johann Georg Melchior Schmidtner (1625 – 1707), shows the Blessed Virgin Mary standing on the crescent moon (the usual way of depicting Mary under her title of the Immaculate Conception), surrounded by angels as she unties knots into a long strip and at the same time rests her foot on the head of a "knotted" snake.   The first Chapel to be named "Mary Untier of Knots" was completed in 1989 in Styria, and Austria, inspired as a supplication in response to the Chernobyl Nuclear Tragedy.
