Artist's Description

Christ Church (built 1857) in Yankallila (South Australia, Australia) has become the shrine of Our Lady of Yankalilla. An image behind the altar is believed to be a representation of the Virgin Mary. The apparition first appeared in 1994 and drew media attention in 1996 since when it has attracted pilgrims from around the world. When first reported, the image appeared to be shaped like the Madonna cradling the Christ Child. Over time, the image has changed to now appear to be the Virgin Mary holding the crucified Jesus.
