- 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 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 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.
Radiating the love of Madonna and Child, this gorgeous reproduction with dark ornate frame will shine in any home and is sure to be cherished for years to come.
