Photographer Josh Michtom has immortalized a selection of ‘Bathtub Madonnas’ he’s found in the Somerville, Massachusetts area. Displayed most commonly by families of Italian descent, these shrines may, for some, be unexpected arrangements on suburban front lawns.
For many wishing to display Our Lady out of doors, the use of a bathtub has proven to be a popular solution to shelter her votive statue. The makeshift grottos can be found in endless colours and models giving neighboring ‘Bathtub’ Madonnas distinctive character.
