Virgin of the Apocalypse

The Virgin is represented as the Woman of the Apocalypse from the New Testament Book of Revelation. Standing on the crescent moon (the Jewish synagogue), she personifies the Christian Church. With the exception of the globe and the tips of the moon, this imposing figure has been carved from a single large piece of elephant tusk.
