THE BLACK MADONNA

Depictions of Mary and Jesus are widespread and date from ancient times to modern day representations.  Prevalent in medieval Europe (circa 12th -15th Centuries) are the shrines, statues and depictions of the Black Madonna.  These tend to be found in traditionally Catholic areas with even older images of ‘the Black mother’ being found in places such as Sardinia.
