Mary continues to appear to us just aswe are. Therefore, a Mary doll should look like the child who owns it. Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared as an Indigenous woman to Juan Diego. Our Lady of Aparecida appeared as a Black woman in Brazil. Our Lady of Fatima appeared as a Portuguese woman. Our Mary doll comes in four different skin tones - dark, medium, light medium and light. Each child should see him or herself reflected in Mary's face, our loving Mother to all.
Mary is crafted from calico cotton with a polyester filling. She has embroidered features and long, wool yarn hair. Each Mary doll is dressed in the same outfit - a removable beige dress and Marian blue veil.
