You guys really like Undine! That’s awesome. Let me show you the Veiled Virgin. It was carved by Gionvanni Strazza in Rome in the mid-nineteenth century. We don’t have an exact date of completion, but we know it arrived in Newfoundland in December of 1856.
It’s possible that the statue was not intended by Strazza to be a depiction of the Virgin Mary, as during this time there was a nationalist movement taking place on the Italian peninsula, which saw many smaller states conglomerated into what was more-or-less modern day Italy (although some territories weren’t added til WWI). This movement also spilled over into art, where veiled women such as the subject of this sculpture were meant to be avatars of the Italian state, in much the same way that Lady Liberty is for the US. Other contemporary depictions were also created around this time, but Strazza’s is arguably one of the finest.
