Reputed to be a blessing, bringing fortune and luck, this holy sandwich features the Virgin Mary Mother of God. After taking a bite, sandwich maker, Diane saw the Virgin Mary staring up at her. Fourteen years later, the sandwich still has not gone moldy. Miraculously, nothing was done to preserve it, or rather, no human intervention has preserved it. It was simply placed in a regular plastic case with cotton. Not a hoax.


Up for bid is an original drawing of this divine manifestation of the Virgin Mary with mystical power by artist, Erik Dalzen. The drawing is still in pristine condition. It has not deteriorated or anything. Artist believes to have been blessed since drawing it. Winning bidder will receive the actual physical drawing, blessings may follow. India ink on Strathmore acid free 70 lb drawing paper. The drawing measures 5.75x4.75 inches. Unique. Signed and dated on the back.
