Virgin Mary Statue with heroin baggies owned by Mr. Eko
Replica Prop


The Virgin Mary statues were filled with heroin bags to smuggle the narcotics outside of Nigeria. The drug smugglers' plane, a Beechcraft, didn't reached its destination but crashed on the Island.

The shown Virgin Mary statue is an exact replica prop of the show-used one. The prop set even contains two baggies full of heroin, they're originally placed inside the statue, but I didn't want to break it up. Of course, there's NO heroin inside the statue nor in the baggies but substituted with brown sugar, it's a REPLICA PROP :). The statue is of heavy ceramic and stands 12 inch tall.
