This beautifully detailed statue of Our Lady, Star of the Sea represents  an ancient title for the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus. The words Star of the Sea are a translation of the Latin title Stella Maris.

The title was used to emphasize Mary's role as a sign of hope and as a guiding star for Christians, especially gentiles, whom the Old Testament Israelites metaphorically referred to as the sea, meaning anyone beyond the "coasts"

Stella Maris has long been the favourite title by which have called on her in whose protection they have always trusted: the Blessed Virgin Mary. Her son, Jesus Christ, accompanied his disciples in their vessels, helped them in their work and calmed the storms.  And so the Church accompanies seafarers, caring for the special spiritual needs of those who for various reasons live and work in the maritime world - Pope John Paul II

Hand Crafted and painted and as a result, fine details may vary. 10.25 inches high with a 2.75 inch base.  Imported from Columbia
