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

Delicate Madonna hand carved out of lime wood. Fatima is one of the most famous places of pilgrimage of the Virgin Mary in the Catholic Church. In 1917 three shepherd's children Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco reported the white, gleaming form of the Mother of God, that appeared before them near the Portuguese village several times to deliver messages from Heaven – the three secrets of Fatima. More and more people followed the little shepherds to the place of the apparition with the last announced visit of Holy Mary witnessed by over 30,000 in the form of the Miracle of the Sun. The sun shone in front of the eyes of the overwhelmed crowd like a swirling disc whose light suddenly struck the earth in jagged lines. Everybody present knelt down to pray. Over four million pilgrims visit Fatima every year. According to accounts of the three blessed shepherd's children, the Fatima Madonna was completely dressed in brilliant white. The cloak worn over her head and her dress are decorated with gold trimming. The Madonna is carried on a cloud mounted on a marbled base.

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.
