Sancta Virgo Virginum
Holy Virgin of  Virgins

Mary's half-figure crowns the stem with three lilies, while the risen Christ with the cross calls her: "My one alone is my dove, my perfect one!"

A host of saints surround the lily, wearing crowns and hailing Mary.  We note the presence of such saints as Catherine of Alexandria and Barbara.

The inscription reminds us that the number of virgins is countless.

"The daughters saw her and called her most blessed" 
(Canticles 6, 9).
