"Nobody can teach me who I am. You can describe parts of me, but who I am - and what I need - is something I have to find out myself."

The Black Madonna is a painting of the Madonna and Christ Child which, according to pious legends, was painted by St. Luke the Evangelist. St. Luke is believed to have used a tabletop from a table built by the carpenter Jesus. It was while Luke was painting Mary that she told him about the events in the life of Jesus that he eventually used in his gospel.
