This 3 1/2″ tall Our Lady of Lourdes peg saint is a painted with her memorable blue sash. She clothed in white and is holding a rosary. Her back is covered in lovely pink roses.
In 1858, a fourteen year old girl named Bernadette saw a vision of Our Lady near Lourdes, France. She was told to go to a nearby spring and wash in it. It became a source of miraculous cures. The Lady in white referred to herself as “The Immaculate Conception.”
