#Diego Voci was born to a devout #catholic family of modest means, in the small Italian village of Gasperina, in the Calabria region in #Italy. At age 8, after a trip with his father to #Rome, Diego began sculpting his own small religious sculptures.  Read more:  https://www.artifactcollectors.com/diego-voci-painting-of-the-week-5154118/Page4.html#61763

MADONNA AND CHILD PART #3 Black #GOD + Persian #MARY = Mulatto #JESUS?

This is #3 in our countdown to Christmas Day featuring “Madonna and Child” portrayals by Internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985), one from 1966 and one from 1975.  Is the idea possible?

This DIEGO VOCI painting provoked 4 questions:
1. “Is God Black?”
2. “Was Mother Mary Persian?”
3. “Was Jesus Mulatto?”
4. “Does God have DNA?”

We’ll publish your comments. Email us at: diegovociproject@gmail.com.
