- Salus Populi Romani
- Reproduction of the most popular Marian image in Rome
- Stunning gold background with dark ornate frame
The centuries-old icon, Salus Populi Romani, or Protectress of the Roman People, resides in the Basilica of St. Mary Major (Santa Maria Maggiore) in Rome, Italy and is one of the most popular images of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Pope St. Pius V processed through Rome with the Byzantine icon in 1571, praying the rosary and asking Mary's intercession for the Christian naval fleet during the Battle of Lepanto. Recently restored, the icon was presented to Pope Francis and the people of Rome in 2018 after a long process that revitalized the gold colors tarnished by centuries of wear. Presented here in a dark, ornate frame with a Florentine motif to highlight the gorgeous gold background, this is a striking piece of sacred art that will be cherished for years to come. Various sizes available.
