We are so excited to release our very first Our Lady of La Vang doll! Our Lady of La Vang appeared in Vietnam around 1800 when Catholics were being persecuted.  While hiding in the jungle, the people would gather to pray the rosary nightly at the same tree. Many of them had also fallen ill from the harsh conditions. One night during their prayers, Mary appeared dressed in the traditional Vietnamese dress, holding baby Jesus, with an angel on either side. Mary comforted them, and gave them instructions on how to make medicine from the trees to cure their illness.  She is clothed in a white dress with pale gold satin trim, an adorable blue overcoat with pale gold satin trim (the overcoat is removable), and a beautiful felt headpiece with a halo of embroidered stars. Mary's hair is pulled back into a lovely bun. Each doll is hand-sewn and finished with lovely embroidery.

 

Doll is 12” tall. Cotton and satin trim, all new polyester fill.
