The scars of the Black Madonna
According to legend, the two scars on her check were from 1403, when the Hussites stormed the Pauline monastery and stole several artifacts, including the Madonna. One of the robbers threw the image on the ground, slashing it twice with his sword, but died trying to inflict another. Despite previous attempts to repair the image, the two scars always reappeared.
