Here's to Mother's Day! This little statue of Mary is nestled in between windows on Kanonicza St. (Street of the Canons) where church bishops and other high officials lived from medieval times to the present. In the 16th century the facades were remodeled in the Renaissance style (curved arches) and embellished with details around the windows. In many European countries Mother's Day is celebrated in May, the month of Mary. In Poland, "Dzien Matki" is observed May 26.
