This beautifully modelled statue of Saint Venonica is crafted from Cornish Farron stone with Cornish pewter and tin embellishments.
The metal veil is held in place by a metal pin and chain, and can be removed to reveal that Veronica is actually wearing somewhat less than one might expect of a holy figure!
The Norman style lettering on the lead band around the pedestal reads "Plus pres est la char que le voile", which translates to "The skin is closer than the veil".
Saint Veronica was one of the many people who accompanied Jesus as he carried the cross and in an act to ease his suffering she offered Jesus her veil. Upon wiping his face his image appeared on the cloth.
