The fresco of the Black Madonna in the Black Church in Brasov, Romania. The smoke from the great fire of 1689 caused the walls to turn black. The story of the Madonna fresco painting is that before the fire, her dress was blue, but after surviving the fire, her dress turned black. The people look at it as a miracle and see the fresco as a beacon of hope. June 8, 2016
