Painted and gilded linden wood
Gift of Ethel Morrison Van Derlip in memory of her mother, Julia Kellogg Morrison
- The Christian LEGEND
of the martyr Saint Catherine of Alexandria demonstrated the virtue of defending one's beliefs.
- Saint Catherine's dedication to her faith, even in the face of great danger, made her a
of Christianity's triumph over paganism. She was one of the most popular Christian heroes.
- The stocky figure and angular drapery of this Austrian sculpture are typical of the late Gothic "hard style."
