Madonnas, Our Ladies

We carve and paint Madonnas of wood in various styles.

Among the Romanesque Madonnas, Our Lady of Mariazell is one of the most popular. This Madonna is represented without the typical "Our Lady" dress, as can be admired in the Basilica of Mariazell (Austria) on just two special days a year. A replica of Our Lady of Mariazell from our production was donated to the Holy Father, John Paul II at Christmas 1994 (see picture above).
Another famous model is Our Lady with Child (Art. 0173), where one should notice the very natural position of the Baby Jesus and the loving look of Our Lady, elements that both underline the clarity and harmony of this perfect image. Visit the Franco Online Shop and you will find all the information regarding our production of more than 350 wood carved Madonnas in various sizes and finishes.
