This 12 inch statue Mary, Untier of Knots is based on the 17th century painting by Johann Georg Schmidtner. The concept of Mary undoing knots is derived from a work by St. Irenaeus of Lyons. In Book III, he shows a parallel between Eve and the Virgin Mary, describing how "the knot of Eve's disobedience was loosed by the obedience of Mary. For what the virgin Eve had bound fast through unbelief, this did the virgin Mary set free through faith."
Devotion to Mary, Untier of Knots has grown since the now Pope Francis took a postcard with the icon back to Argentina in the 1980's. A chalice engraved with the icon image was presented to Pope Francis from the Argentine people.
The statue is made from resin and measures 12 inches high.
