Another capture from the private chapel of Prof.Anton Lehmden's castle in Austria Deustchkreutz.
He bought this wooden Maria statue many years ago in a flea market in Syria.
Around the neck of Maria there are hundreds of rosaries hung most probably as votives.
Yesterday I'd posted a similar capture but it was unsharp. The warning came from Krzysztof Dera (Fis2) and I removed it.
Bu kare de Prof.Anton Lehmden'in Deutschkreutzdaki şatosunun özel şapelinden. Lehmden seneler evvel Suriyedeki bir bit pazarından satın almış bu ahşap Meryem Ana heykelini.
Boynunda adak olarak asılmış yüzlerce teşbih var.

An unusual capture, I have never seen a statue decked with rosaries like this, it makes for a fascinating sight. A beautiful capture of something I would guess is very rarely seen outside of this room. Excellent subject to share, thank you!
All the best

Unusual to see a Madonna statue covered in rosary beads from head to foot. Interesting tradition and attractive.
Thanks for sharing,

An interesting article about the chapel and sculpture with rosary ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated sculpture of Saint Mary with a rosary.
An interesting folk customs.
Good evening and all the best for the weekend, good luck.

Hello dear Mesut,
I like very much the perspective you chose to present this statue, I thought it was a work created by Anton Lehmden and had already found an interpretation for it while viewing the thumbnail:) I like very much the sense of space around the Madonna and the impact given to her pensive glance. The soft light and surrounding tones make the darker colours on the rosaries stand out and attract our attention. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
