St. Barbara is the patron saint of miners, in particular the silver miners that once populated Kunta Hora. Here is a statue honoring the working silver Miner. Note the leather strap attached to a leather fabric behind the Miner that served as a sled down into the mine’s entrance to begin each day’s work. Copyright 2019 Pamela Breitberg
