"M" is for "M"ary --it's ABC Wednesday again !

Well folks, I'm neither Catholic or even very religious (churches do tend to spook me out a bit), but I DO recognize beauty when I see it...   I found this slightly larger than life statue in the tiny church in tiny town of Tomales, California...

Your Mary really is especially beautiful and realistic, and a bit enigmatic.
Thanks for sharing her.
Shalom from her home country.

the statue actually looks like saint therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face. since i cannot see the entire statue, i don't know who it is. if you had a full shot of the photo, i could tell you. anyhow, your patron saint that you requested, is madeleine sophie-barat for 2009.
