Statue of St. Reparata at the Duomo in Florence, Italy; if she existed she was a 4th Century virgin and martyr, patroness of Florence until the 1200s, when someone decided to depose her and set up the Virgin Mary and John the Baptist in her place. But Reparata got this lovely statue as a parting gift; look at that carving. (Wikipedia)
