Summary[edit]

Description
English: Statue of Virgin Mary in the transept of the cathedral of Strasbourg, France. Created 1858/9, restored 1899, 1934, 1954 and 1998.
Français : Statue de la Vierge Marie dans le transept de la cathédrale de Strasbourg.
Dès les premières années qui ont suivi sa fondation [1717], la Congrégation s'est dotée d'une statue de la Vierge Marie. D'après les écrits, elle devait être [t]rès belle, un objet d'art en quelque sorte, et d'une certaine valeur. Malheureusement, elle n'a pas survécu aux ravages de la Révolution. D'abord volée, elle fut ensuite fondue. C'est seulement après un peu plus d'un demi siècle, en l'année 1857, que le Comité décida de s'offrir une nouvelle statue. La réalisation fut alors confiée à un dénommé Küschner. Les travaux de dorure à un certain Ott. Elle fut achevée et livrée en mars (sans doute de l'année suivante). C'est elle que la Congrégation honore encore aujourd'hui. Elle a ensuite été réparée et restaurée, notamment au niveau des dorures, à quatre reprises. Une première fois en 1899, une seconde fois en 1934, une troisième fois en 1954 et puis plus récemment, en 1998, par l'atelier Meyer à Koenigshoffen afin de la parer pour le Grand Jubilé de l'an 2000.

Translation from French

In the first years after its foundation [1717], the congregation acquired a statue of the Virgin Mary. According to the writings, she had to be very beautiful, an object of art of some kind, and of some value. Unfortunately, it did not survive the ravages of the Revolution. First stolen, it was then melted. It was only after a little more than half a century, in the year 1857, that the Committee decided to offer itself a new statue. The realization was then entrusted to a man named Küschner. The work of gilding to a certain Ott. It was completed and delivered in March (probably the following year). It is here that the Congregation still honors today. She was then repaired and restored, especially at the gilding level, four times. A first time in 1899, a second time in 1934, a third time in 1954 and then more recently, in 1998, by the Meyer workshop in Koenigshoffen in order to adorn it for the Great Jubilee of the year 2000.
