    I tried to post this iconic representation of the Black Madonna some time ago, but the link had problems. This is one of the oldest "conventional" images of the Black Madonna I have ever found. This wood panel from the 7th century France is rare because Mary and the Christ child are depicted phenotypically African and the two men (angels?) beside her are obviously depicted with dreadlocks.

    I apologize...but I think I got it!

    If anyone tried to view this link it was giving me problems again. But I think I got it right this time. Her is the same link again and the previous link should be correct.
