Korean Madonna

Saenamteo Martyrs’ Shrine in Seoul has this statue of the Madonna and Child that I quite like.  Our Lady is dressed in traditional Korean clothing and holds the Infant Jesus.

I haven’t seen too many statues with Korean features, apart from those erected in honour of the Korean martyrs.  However, this one is wholly fitting, considering where it is located.
