The Virgin (Our Lady) from the Battle of Lepanto

Well, when we were in Madrid a few weeks ago Mr. Don sort of wanted to go see the Naval Museum, but I said - do you think there would really be anything of interest in there for us?  He didn't press, and we never toured the museum.

Now I learn they are restoring this incredible statue.  Never heard of her until I read about her tonight.  she's awesome - take a look at her, and if that blue eye isn't enough to send shivers up and down your spine I don't know what ever would!

Information in English:
Statue of Our Lady at 1571 Battle of Lepanto comes to light!

...el Manco de Lepanto, Miguel de
Cervantes lost use of his arm in
that battle from a chest wound,
recovered to become tax collector
for the Crown, and write Don Quixote=
Quiotl(N)=tallo del Maguey, the lance
that ends the Century plant's life.

Hola, Carlos.

What do you think of her, this Virgin with the haunting eye?
