Antique Our Lady of Altötting polychrome plaster statue.
Altötting or Altoetting is “The Lourdes of Germany” and home to a shrine of the Black Madonna.
A carved wood statue has been there since the 14th century. It is held in the Chapel of Mercy.
It is the biggest Marian pilgrimage in the German-speaking countries.
In the late 15th century, a dead child came back to life after his mother's prayers.
People came to seek help from Our Lady of Altötting after that miracle. The chapel if filled with votives.

It is the first time I find such a statue. It is hand painted and 'MADONNA ALTOETTING' is engraved on the base.
The colours are still beautiful but the statue has been exposed to dust ans has discoloured. The paint is uneven and there are plenty of marks.
It has chips as can be seen in the photographs.
Sadly, the head of the Infant Jesus has been broken and badly repaired. The glue is very visible and leaked at the front.
The eyes have been coloured blue.

A fantastic find despite its flaws!
Height: 49 cm / 19.29 inches
Base: 13.4 x 13.5 cm / 5.11 x 5.11 inches
