THe Lady Statue in the Abbey's Lady Chapel is well-known and much-loved. The original is 1 metre, just over 3 feet, high, 13th Century German, carved in wood. Mary is crowned and carries a lily sceptre in her right hand. She tilts slightly to one side to balance the weight of the childon her hip, and half smiles at him. Jesus holds on to his crib as if were a toy, though it symbolises his lordship over creation. It is the combination of the ttheological statement of what is recognisably human that attracts the viewer and invites prayer.
Customcast, who also make The Throne of Grace for us also created this in a strong resin, it stands 30cm (12") high and weighs over 2 Kg (about 5lb).
It is best displayed about shoulder height if possible. THIS ITEM CAN ONLY BE DELIVERED TO U.K. ADDRESSES
