This statue is an exquisite replica of the Black Madonna - Notre Dame de Sous Terre of Chartres. A replica of how She appears in the ancient Druid grotto beneath Chartres Cathedral outside of Paris, France. Notre Dame de Sous Terre means Our Lady Underground.
'For the 11th century pilgrims She was a bridge, connecting them to humanity’s ancient roots. A bridge they could take to the other shore, away from a world full of hierarchies and violence. Today she is still that bridge, inspiring modern pilgrimages from around the world. Once again the Black Madonna speaks to an ever growing audience who seeks a world in balance. Humanity will not be denied the love of our Mother....' Judith Shaw
Formed in resin with a black stone coloured finish, 21cm tall, beloved Black Madonna calls to your Divinity which is also your creativity; your capacity to take radical responsibility for your walk upon this earth, celebrating the gifts bestowed to you under the grace of Divine Mother/Father God.
The Black Madonna holds the sacred space of the 'womb of no-thing'. That rich and fertile space within your holy heart that yearns to express the beauty of your soul. It is the darkness and the light, the mystery, the magic and the very essence of your True Divine Nature.
