This eighteenth-century stone sculpture of the Virgin Mary and child was most likely part of a facade. Often seen in cities and villages around France, these superb religious sculptures add a lovely detail to the streetscape. They were usually displayed sitting in niches to protect them a little more from the weather while framing the work.
