Madonna of the Barn




This icon was given to my brother-in-law by one of his clients. It is  a German print and originally belonged to the client's parents who were Polish immigrants. It had been in her barn for many years.

I'm working on cleaning the frame and placing the print in a mat so that he can hang it in his office. 

This image is known as the "Black Madonna," and is one of the most revered icons in Poland, if not in Europe.

Here is a link to information about the, "Black Madonna," and the legends that surround it.
