Marrickville, Mary Mother of All Nations

'Mary Mother of All Nations' is a sculpture located on the grounds of St Brigid's Catholic Church, on the corner of Marrickville Road and Livingstone Road, in the inner west suburb of Marrickville. The Monastery was built here in 1915 and St Brigid’s Church was opened in 1921. Vietnamese parishioners requested a statue of Our Lady to be placed outside the church, around which they could gather to pray as they do in Vietnam. Artist and sculptor Daniel Dominguez created the brass statue in 2006, modelled on the statue of Mary Queen of the World in the square outside Saigon Cathedral. The features were inspired by the Renaissance Della Robbia Madonna in Florence.
