Religious, thus catholic (because you were either that or nothing), culture in Flanders used to be mainly about Mother Mary and her child. Now that culture is disappearing at a fast pace and the last remains of it in people's houses are getting tossed away or arrive at a second hand shop, where you can buy them for close to nothing.
And that's what I did a few years ago. I am a heathen, but in a few weeks time I bought a series of Mother Mary of Flanders (yep, we nationalized her :-) ) statues for a few euros. So now I have three more or less equal statues: the coloured one in the picture, and two "monochrome" ones (one smaller than the other).
Funny thing is that they all have been made to look like wood or, in this case, painted wood, but that they are really ... plaster.
