Our Lady of Sorrows

Outdoor shrine in Taufers, South Tirol, Italy

The shrine features seven swords rather than one to mark the seven "sorrows" the Virgin Mary suffered. (See the page for Our Lady of Sorrows.) As is often the case in this iconographic type, the figure gazes up as if at her son on the Cross.
