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