Devotees say that in 1885, the lumberjack, Vicente Aburto found an image inside the hollow of a blackwood tree (Gliricidia sepium), on a private property southeast of Managua and took it to a Church in the center of Managua where a priest said it was an image of Santo Domingo de Guzmán, who was a missionary, protector and defender of slaves who lived from 1170-1221.
