Mary in art: a pieta

This pieta is placed in the side wall of the Candle Chapel, a church in the German place of pilgrimage Kevelaer. I took this picture when I was at the shrine in August last year. The Candle Chapel dates from the 17th century and borrows its name from the thousands of votive candles that are burned there each day. The statue however is modern.
