Madonna and Child

On either side of the Old Cathedral (inside the left and right entrance doors by the stairs leading up to the choir loft) stand two beautiful statues of the Madonna and Child. I don't know anything about the artist or age of these statues, except that Mary is wearing a crown, which depicts her as Mary, Queen of Heaven. This statue is more personal and human to me -- notice how the Christ Child's shoe has fallen off and how he has turned his face toward heaven. I especially admire the serene expression on Mary's face.
