Saint Odile

Church of St. Gregory, Ribeauvillé, France

Statues of St. Odile always portray her as an adult. Sometimes she is shown with closed eyes to reference the fact that she was blind before her baptism. Almost all images are like this one in using a cross and a book open to a pair of eyes to reference the miracle by which she gained her sight.
