Saint Mary from Peissenberg / Die Madonna vom Peissenberg

Saint Mary from Peissenberg / Die Madonna vom Peissenberg
She is quite old, she was not new when she was given to the preceding chapel in 1514. But soon she got a repute to work miracles, which resulted into a nice baroque stone chapel and then a real church built to share it's bell tower from the other end / Die Dame ist sehr alt, jemand gab sie 1514 der hoelzernen Kapelle auf dem Berg, wo sie bald in den Ruf kam, Wunder zu wirken. Dafuer wurde ihr dann bald eine Steinkapelle hingestellt, und dann schloss man auf der anderen Seite vom Turm eine richtige Kirche an.

Would it be very irreverent to say that the lady looks well fed? :)
Great shot though with nice tones.

While the curve of her chin would today not inspire any cosmetics seller to make her a spokes person, I fear when the model lived, she likely had the repute to be the most comely of the honourable virgins in town and her dad for sure was a well off man of considerable influence :D
