"One Man Gathers What Another Man Spills" Jerry Garcia
This image fascinates me as well. I love to look at at. The story is truly amazing too.
I have been infatuated with the Black Madonna for years too...I love this painting♥♥♥
Mary looks so sad, so introverted, so very haunted. Thank you for posting this famous image for us to reflect on.
very cool, thanks for sharing...so full of mystery and wonder
Me too! Love her!
An image that is hauntingly beautiful. What a fascinating story. I am not well versed as to why the black Madonna is referred to as a black Madonna, but this story here certainly presents a good reason.
imagine all the prayers that inhabit the soot of all those votive candles over time. this is why i love the oldest of chapels and churches...the very air stirs with the hopes and dreams of countless lifetimes.thank you....
She is quite the somber lady in this painting!Affectionate Madonna
I love this figure. I had her on my blog last year. I think that she is very special. When you think of what the people of that region endured, it makes sense that her face would be deeply sad. I think that the painting took on the pain of time. Even the soot may have been a part of that.Noelle
What synchronicity. My post tomorrow is this same virgin in a slightly different variation. She was a gift from a friend who was in Poland. I've got a story and links, but I'm just going to check yours.
Thank you for this Mary contribution and her history, we are indeed bonded through generations of Mary love.Sue x
She is awesome ~ Love her ~ quite the art work ~ thanks, namaste, Carol (A Creative Harbor) Happy AVD ^_^
