Sources of inspiration for the Virgin Mary in Bondage - See immediately below: 

“The Lady of Nazareth Chose to Play Along” Marilyn Artus, 2012, Giclée Printed Collage with Hand Embroidery and Acrylic

And below the Marilyn Artus see: The Virgin Mary with Saints Thomas Aquinas and Paul, about 1330, Bernardo Daddi. Tempera and gold leaf on panel, 47 7/8 x 44 1/2 in. - J. Paul Getty Museum (In this case, the bondage is implied by the control exercised by Aquinas and Paul who insisted on the concept of original sin and therefore on the need to imprison Mary to be impregnated by the deity itself.  Of course, bondage continues to this day in many of today's religious communities.
