Bathtub Madonnas

Remember Bathtub Madonnas, aka Mary-on-the-halfshell? I still see lots of Mary-in-a-grotto shrines, but not so many bathtubs anymore.
What a great icon of folk culture they are! It seems that there are enclaves of them thoughout various parts of the country.
Apparently, quite a few people like them. I found a blog devoted entirely to bathtub madonnas. Check out bathtub mary .
