This is a mini-series on The Cloisters of NYC. It's a composite structure that incorporates elements from five medieval French cloisters which were disassembled and reassembled in Upper Manhattan in 1934-38. You can read more about it here
. We visited there in April.
This is an almost-lifesize statue of the Virgin Mary from Germany (modern France), Alsace, ca. 1250.
It's from the former choir screen of the cathedral of Strasbourg..
It's made from sandstone with the original paint.
What amazes me most is that only her arms are lost over all these years!
(Tomorrow is my last pic of The Cloisters series. It's the funniest.)
