Abstract: The Oratory of Our Lady of Mount Carmel has for centuries been a well-known landmark in Old Theatre Street, Valletta. When one looks inside, one is immediately struck by the statue of Our Lady of Mount Carmel that surmounts the main altar. The wooden statue is the first processional statue of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in the Maltese islands. It was probably brought from Rome in 1657. Neither the exact date when the statue was made, nor the artist involved, are known. In 2019, the Confraternity of Our Lady of Mount Carmel launched an appeal to collect the funds necessary to undertake and complete the conservation and restoration project on the statue.
