Saturday Statues

Saints Who Weren’t Sinners

I love the vivid drapery on this unidentified statue set in the niche of a wall across from Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral, Brno, Czech Republic. It may be Saint Barbara, an early Christian saint and martyr who died in A.D. 306. Her symbols include a sword, tower, cup and wafer, crown, and/or palm. The statue holds a sword and cup, and a circular ring inside the cup could be a wafer.
