Our lady of the macarena history

María Santísima de la Esperanza Macarena Coronada, popularly known as the Esperanza Macarena or, simply, the Queen of Seville and Universal Devotion, from which it takes its name from the Macarena neighborhood (Seville) and not the other way around as it is usually believed, is a Marian invocation venerated in the basilica of the Macarena, located in the Sevillian neighborhood of San Gil.

Her feast day is celebrated by the Catholic Church on December 18, and is represented with five petals of green French rock crystal[1] set in the form of lilies, called mariquillas, which pierce her chest, a gift of the Sevillian bullfighter Joselito el Gallo, great benefactor of the image and former brother of the brotherhood.

It is a candlestick carving made in the seventeenth century by an anonymous author, although it has been attributed to various sculptors related to the workshop of Pedro Roldán, among which stands out his daughter La Roldana. It was canonically crowned in 1964, becoming the second sorrowful image of Seville to obtain this dignity, preceded by the Virgen de la Amargura, and in 1971 the mayor of the city, Juan Fernandez Rodriguez, imposed the Gold Medal of Seville.
