Black Madonna of Marsat  (France)

The variation on the skin tones on this Black Virgin can be attributed to the use of a flash camera. When the flash operates, the skin tone looks gray. Her yellow and orange skirt are more vibrant than shown here.
Handpainted: Each one is a little different.

Marsat: the Valley of the Waters

The Black Virgin of Marsat enjoys an annual pilgrimage to her church where those who come to thank her do so for saving the town from the plague. This flowing design stems from the twelfth century and has a cleansing and purifying nature.

There is a legend that the entire church sometimes fills itself with warm light only to plunge into darkness whenever someone enters.

The workmen labored in vain to finish the building, so it was completed by three small boys who mysteriously appeared and then later vanished.

The Black Madonna images in European pilgrimage shrines are a matter of some controversy. Throughout Europe there are over 500 examples of these black images and, while anathema to the orthodox church, they are widely venerated as having esoteric, magical and wonder-working powers.

THE FRENCH BLACK VIRGINS

Whoever the enigmatic Black Virgin may be, she holds a powerful attraction for her millions of devotees around the world. Her sacred sites stand on highly charged earth energy centres, enhanced by megalithic ley-lines and sacred architecture.

From ancient times to the present, people have undertaken pilgrimages to her shrines as a way to explore her mysteries and to enable her to do her miraculous work of healing, transformation and inspiration.

France has more than 300 Black Virgin places of worship and over 150 Black Virgin statues still in existence.
