The Virgin Mary and Jesus are popularly depicted as having white skin despite the fact that he was likely a Middle-Eastern Jew, but artists have created Black Madonnas, representations of Mary with dark features and dark skin, that can be found from as early as 12th century. They are the oldest images of Madonna in the world. The depictions are not always said to be representative of race or ethnicity but of Madonna's goddess.
The statues and depictions can be found primarily in Catholic countries across Europe.
