A Black Madonna or Black Virgin is a statue or painting of Mary in which she is depicted with dark skin, especially those created in Europe in the medieval period or earlier. In this specialized sense "Black Madonna" does not refer to images of the Virgin Mary portrayed as specifically ethnically black, which are popular in Africa & areas with large black populations, such as Brazil & the US, but rather refers to portrayals of the Virgin Mary with dark skin created during this time period.
