Madonna D'Oropa Medal by Cynthia Ann Jewels | LaNae Fine Jewelry

Madonna D'Oropa Medal by Cynthia Ann Jewels. The Black Madonna of Oropa was made of cedar from Lebanon and painted black. A shrine was built for the statue at a pre-Christian holy site to end local “pagan” practices. The statue of Our Lady became quite attached to this place. More than a thousand years later, a group of monks tried to move her to a new location, but she refused to go. She allowed herself to be moved half a mile but then became so heavy, no one could move her until it was decided to return her to her original site. In the 1600’s St. Anne appeared before a nun and told her it would be pleasing to Heaven if the statue was crowned. She was crowned every 100 yrs after that. 211 CH DIA, 2.06 TW
