A sculpture of the Virgin Mary, its white-hewn surfaces now beginning to dirty from the perpetual elements, hardy lichens and perching birds. And yet this icon to Christianity – epitomising the innocence of femininity and the unselfishness of Motherhood – still manages to radiate a kind of purity from a lifeless stone statue; a testament no doubt to the ingrained Biblical foundations that our Western social strata has been built upon for many hundreds of years.
