Nice looking lady. She looks old. Is she?

@Steve Rice: Hard to say. In that place she could be old. Thanks, Steve.

Magnificent shape and proportions. That's amazing how can the stone give us a feeling of ourselves. Congratulations.

In middle ages, statues, churches, everything was painted…

How intriguing, it's stunning and the colours are different somehow, primitive but so lovely :)

Sculpting the human form is such an art ... and what a hairdo! Good capture, Michael.

Her pose is quite interesting Michael. Maybe she is running from something..?

great find what an interesting statue, it looks as if the statue is very old and yet the building seems more modern, a shot that interests me and makes my mind wonder whats the history of the statue

@JJ: Thanks, JJ. i wonder why and who painted it.

Paul van der Meer from Valkenswaard, Netherlands

Some of us can photograph a lifetime without ever capturing something as dynamic and interesting as a statue. Good for you.

it seems like she's running away from someone, something and running towards a garden... like they say, pictures tell a thousand words! nice one, Michael!
