Idol maker, Idol Breaker Extraordinaires

Disclaimer:I am not interested in converting or swaying anyone in a religious fashion, I am personally intrested in Iconoclastic behavior as it relates to World History...
...I had the pleasure of seeing one of these during a trip to Rome in 2000.....

"The Black Madonnas originally all had Africoid features before most of them were destroyed by iconoclasts. When they were replaced, the artists retained the dark skin color but, not being familiar with real Afrikans, gave European features to the paintings. In cases where originals have survived, you may witness Africoid features on Mary and her child Jesus, such as the Black Madonna of Nuria, Spain ..called "the Queen of the Pyrenees." Russia's remarkable legacy of Black Madonnas and other Christian icons of dark skin is evidenced in the book, Russian Icons by Vladimir Ivanov, including the feature story of the Spring 1994 issue of Russian Life magazine, graced with a Black Madonna on its cover."
