Ladies with child representing virtues; not just fashion bulges, to look at them. St. Mary's, Helsingor, DK Mariakyrkan.
Don't nobody tell the Vatican that these are here. Look between St. Luke, there and the next gospeler, and see the shapes. That is real life. We enlarged it here so you could see. If you like, if it disturbs you, click on the picture and make it small.
Note the lovely spiral carved staircase leading to the private worship boxes.
Back to use of female figures for the Virtues. Do tell the Vatican.
