Product information "Hand-carved Lourdes Madonna - Madonna of the Virgin Mary"

The appearances of the Holy Virgin Mary in Lourdes, reported by the miller's daughter Bernadette Soubirous in 1858, continue to attract large numbers of visitors to the pilgrimage site in southern France today. Saint Mary is said to have appeared to the poor fourteen year old girl on a total of 18 occasions in the Massabielle grotto in Lourdes and to have passed on various messages to her. During one of these encounters Bernadette dug up a spring which had healing properties attributed to its waters. This is where pilgrims from all over the world pray to the Mother of God for recovery from illness and suffering for themselves or their family members. Around 7,000 cures have been effected in Lourdes since 1858 with 69 of these being deemed miracles by the church. According to Bernadette's reports, the Holy Virgin Mary wore a white robe and a blue belt - the classical elements which are used to represent the Lourdes Madonna in all traditional representations. The Madonna carries a long, precious rosary above her hands, which are folded in prayer. The hem of her dress is adorned with two delicate roses.

Supplier description "Lang woodcraft"

Wood carvings produced by the hands of a master craftsman

Master carver Andreas Lang is the second generation of his family to perform the traditional craftsmanship of wood carving in Elzach on the edge of the Southern Black Forest Nature Park. He trained as a wood carver in Freiburg im Breisgau. He took over the wood carving business from his father and raised the workshop's outstanding reputation throughout the region to an even higher level.

Like the Black Forest, Elzach is a predominantly Roman Catholic area. This is why his wood carving workshop primarily creates religious objects from a sense of inner conviction. He gains inspiration for new motifs by studying old patterns in books. Churches and abbeys repeatedly call on his services for restoration work. They value his expert advice and skills as a wood carver very highly.

In addition to devotional objects, Andreas Lang has also developed an outstanding reputation for the carving of Carnival masks. He has been the master carver for Carnival Committees in the Black Forest and the whole of southern Germany for many years. Anyone who is aware of the value of the traditional Carnival cultural artefact will also be aware of the magnitude of this honour.

As a master carver Andreas Lang is convinced that only the finest and most thorough craftsmanship can lead to outstanding quality. His name guarantees this.

All products are hand-crafted. All original from the Black Forest.
