St Mary's column

María Jesús Ortiz de Fernández

Jülich /  Mariensäule   Jülich /  Mariensäule


Column crowned by the figure of Mary rising out of the water of life with a two twisted and intertwined spiralling reliefs with scenes from Jülich's history, in good and bad times, in times of preaching and struggles, in times of economic success and catastrophic destruction, taking refuge under the protective cloak of the Madonna. Example for the column was Trajan's Column in Rome.
