The miraculous statue of Our Lady Consoler of the Afflicted in the cathedral of Luxembourg.
The statue was carved from wood of the miraculous oak of Scherpenheuvel, a famous Marian shrine in Belgium, and has been venerated in Luxembourg since the 17th century.
In 1666 Mary was presented with a key, symbolising her patronage of the city of Luxembourg. It still hangs from the statue’s right arm.
