  Mary, Mother of Jesus
by Ash59

Occasionally, you may come across something that has been transferred into the mines from the world above, such as this painting of Mary.

Miners often used to bring belongings down to the mine that were colourful and enshrine them, just to give themselves a break from the monotonous grey walls around them. I believe that this picture is over 300 years old and is priceless, without the variety that it brings to the area.
