All are nicely done. I like number 6. A very strange statue

Thank you Happy_Peasent!
I've seen a couple of this statue, it's a Black Madonna statue and it's made of black wood, like in the F.C. Barcelona stadion.

In fact, it's not made of black wood.

This image (12th century) was found in a cave, and remained there during many centuries until a basilica was build for her.

It is said that she has acquired this black color due to the smoke of the candles that have accompanied her during all these centuries.

Regards.

Thanks for sharing these well executed photos.
I am always amazed by the ornate details created by the artists/craftsmem of those long ago days. Imagine what it would cost to create something like that today.
