WASHINGTON (CNN) A photo of a toddler who was awestruck by the portrait of former first lady Michelle Obama went viral this week.

It was snapped at the National Portrait Gallery by a visitor from North Carolina, who posted it on his Facebook page.

It shows two-year-old Parker Curry staring at the towering portrait of Michelle Obama that was painted by Amy Sherald.

Parker's mother said the little girl was so amazed, she wouldn't even turn around for a picture.

Mom also says that Parker believes Michelle Obama is a queen, and Parker wants to be a queen as well.
