Nuestra Señora de Soledad
The statue of Our Lady of Solitude, the patroness of Oaxaca in Mexico.
According to legend the statue was miraculously brought to Oaxaca in the 16th century by a mule that had joined a mule train bound for Guatemala. Once it arrived in Oaxaca the mule disappeared, leaving its pack behind. The statue of the Sorrowful Mother which was inside the pack has been venerated in the city ever since.
