Each piece from A Putia du Re is 100% handmade. This Papyrus keychain was made in Syracuse, Sicily, only using premium papyrus paper, metal and plastic; every single item is signed by the artist.
The one in this list depicts the "Madonna delle Lacrime".
"Madonna delle Lacrime" is a venerated holy church in Syracuse. On the 29-30-31 August and 1st September 1953, a chalk picture, depicting the Immaculate Heart of Mary, produced human tears. The phenomenon lasted, for shorter or longer intervals for four days. The city of Syracuse decided to build a shrine to remember that miracle.
Papyrus paper was made and used in Sicily since the Greek time, about first millennium BC. It is great to have your piece of "sicilianity" always with you in your pocket!
