In the sixteenth century, Our Lady of Guadalupe miraculously appeared to a poor man named Juan Diego near Tepayac Hill in Central Mexico. Through her motherly love, she offered him much consolation. Her appearance led to the conversion of millions of indigenous people. Today, Our Lady of Guadalupe is recognized by the Vatican as the Patron Saint of "The Americas." This beautifully and colorfully carved figure stands 7 1/4 inches high. Crafted by the artisans at Joseph's Studio. Made from resin and stone.

|Review:||I have this statue on a shelf where I view it often and feel Our Lady's presence with me. To all believers in AZ, Our Lady of Guadalupe's appearance is particularly important.|
