La Moreneta (Black Madonna), patroness of Catalonia and one of the nine patrons of the autonomous communities of Spain. The image is venerated in the Monastery of Montserrat.
The image is a 12th century Romanesque sculpture (original replica). Representing the Virgin with the child Jesus seating on her lap and measures 50 centimetres in height. In her right hand she holds a sphere symbolizing the universe; the child has his right hand raised as a signal of blessing while holding a pineapple in his left hand. The face and the head of the Child Jesus were retouched in the past and show a naturalistic style strange to the Romanesque images.
With the exception of the face and the hands of Mary and the child, the image is golden. The carnations are black, which has given it the popular nickname of La Moreneta (Black Madonna). Associated to the group of the so-called ¨black virgins¨ which was so spread across the Romanic Europe and whose meaning has given rise to many studies, but in this case its colour seems to be the result of the transformation of the varnish of her face and hands because of the passage d time and a repainting from the beginning of the 19th century.they are a 19th century addition.
