Probably St. Mary, as she is accompanied by a male statue, located around the small altar at St. Josef's. In the background one of the walls with alcoves, where the urns are placed into.
My (old) coffee-table book of selected postings.

Interesting way to show the wall with the urns, placing them in the background and giving the focus to the statue in the foreground. Rather good.

@António Pires: Many thanks, António!
Such beautiful work in the figure . . the natural wood stands so well against the stone here.

@Ronnie 2¢: Excellent 19C work, parishes start to rediscover them slowly.
Love this angle, showing architecture and the wood of the statue, noticed it yesterday. Just looking at her face, she is beautifully carved. Very beautiful shot.

@MARIANA: Her husband (the other statue) is a nice one, too! :-)
A great close-up of St. Mary showing lots of detail and texture. The wood has a nice warm effect against the background.

@Steven: Figures like this were long hidden in cellars, if not sold or even trashed, because parishes deemed them old-fashioned or inappropriate. Unbelievable, eh?
Very creative! Amazing composition and great tones! Excellent work!

@Andrea: It was much darker there than it appears here: more then 10 seonds exposure, if memory recalls correctly.
Very creative and nice carpentry.

@Philip: I'm glad they 'reactivated' them, as many of these statues and other historistic decor were removed in past years, because they were deemed old-fashioned and inappropriate.
lovely photo, the warm tones of the wood are fantastic.

Nice details on this wooden statue.

@akarui: Yes, very fine work: St. Joseph is a fine statue, too. You normally don't come that close to them.
a makes a very beautiful portrait.
First the statue is very expressive, very human like
Secondly it is well presented with a very good close framing and DOF

@Laurent: Many thanks, Laurent! Indeed, this Mary is less Queen of Heaven but a more grounded woman.
A beautiful statue with such a wonderful expression stays guardian to the urns.....but this is such a sublime thought, you'd have no fear.....A great take!!!
