This French statue in fired 'biscuit' (a type of porcelain) dates from the 1900s. Mary wears a vale and is crushing a snake (representing the downfall of Satan).
"I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel." (Genesis 3:15)
Originally displayed in a private chapel. Note that the hands have been cut off - this was done when there was a death of a child in the family.
