Our Lady of Jazłowiec

Our Lady of Jazłowiec is an iconic representation in Carrara marble of Mary, mother of Jesus, commissioned in 1883 in Rome for the convent of the Sisters of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the historic village of Yazlovets, then in Austrian-occupied Poland, now in Ukraine, still a place of pilgrimage.[1] The neoclassical carving by Tomasz Oskar Sosnowski, is 170cm high on a plinth 24cm wide.
