This exclusive, vibrantly-hued Virgin Mary religious statue is complete with folded hands and bower of roses characteristic of the original. As a garden statue for your lawn or as an indoor sculpture in a quite place of meditation, Our Lady of Guadalupe (Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe) is rich with sacred history.
A 1531 visitation by the Blessed Mother to an indigenous peasant in the Tepeyac desert gave birth to one of the world’s most visited Catholic shrines and the inspiration for our Madonna statue. Her image has been used throughout Mexican history, not only as a religious icon but also as a sign of patriotism. Miguel Hidalgo used her image when he launched his revolt against the Spanish in 1810. She could be seen on the rebels’ banners and their battle cry was “Long Live Our Lady of Guadalupe.” Emiliano Zapata also carried a banner of the Virgen of Guadalupe when he entered Mexico City in 1914.
