The first time I noticed this statue it was summertime and the stark white image peeked through the overgrown greenery. She's so peaceful and refined in contrast to the tangle of growth and the rough hewn shed behind her. When you see her for the first time it's surprising and it seems she would be more at place in a formal courtyard or on an altar surrounded by saints.
Mentally I refer to her as "Our Lady of the Side Yard" as opposed to the "Our Lady of the Bathtubs" that abound just east of here.
May you have a wonderful Easter Sunday, surrounded by loved ones.
