(Art) Tindari by Lydia Ruyle

Black Madonna

Tindari is a pilgrimage destination on Sicily, the Mediterranean home to thousands of years of the divine feminine. Traders carried images on their routes, the Greeks, the Egyptians, the Phoenicians, the Romans. She is black and she is beautiful, in Latin, is chiseled into stone at La Madonna’s shrine. Mosaics tell the stories of her many miracles, including stopping the lava flow of Mt. Aetna.
