Interesting....This image of Mary bears a striking resemblance to Guan Yin, the Buddhist "goddess of mercy."

Note that the ANGEL has no cross on its brooch, while the Virgin does. I.e., being human, Mary was saved by the sacrifice of the Cross, while Angels, not being human, were not. It's little theological details that contribute to the credibility of an artifact like the Tilma.

The most horrifying thing I have heard is that the face was painted over some centuries ago, because Mary looked too Indian, was "too dark." It would be great if some restorers could be trusted with the job of removing the pale-face paint.
