Profile
One of the so-called Black Madonnas, image of the Blessed Virgin Mary, normally holding the Christ Child, who have been "inculturated", that is, made the little Jewish girl Mary look more like the people in the area of the artist, or which are actually black in color. This one serves as part of the altar piece of the Sanctuary on Montevergine. This site is the goal of thousands of pilgrims each year.
