The Image of Our Lady of Lourdes

The Image of Our Lady of Lourdes was sculpted following the indications of Bernadette. These instructions were:

-   A figure that represents a young woman dressed in white and with a blue belt.
-    Hands together in an action of prayer
-    With a rosary hanging off her arm
-    A golden rose on each foot

Initially, Bernadette did not like the image. The image represents the Apparition when she said: “I am the Immaculate Conception” .

It was placed in that niche on April 4th 1864. It was sculpted by artist Joseph Fabisch, professor of the Lyon Fine Arts School.
