The statue of Mariken van Nieumeghen, the chief character in the 15th century mystery play of that name.
Legend has it that Mariken, having entered into a league with the Devil, was fettered in iron rings but that when her period of penitence was over the rings sprang open of themselves. She is depicted holding the broken rings.
