Mariensäule Column - Vienna


The Mariensaüle, the column of the Virgin Mary is a symbol of power and belief! It shows the Virgin Mary vanquishing evil, which is represented by the horrible figure at the feet of the saint. The four corners of the pedestal are adorned by cherubs, which represent the sword of God fighting against vice. With sword in hand, they are read to fight the four vices of men: the lion is the symbol of war, the dragon is that of famine, the snake represents heresy, and the monstrous basilisk represents plague.
