Onze Lieve Vrouw van Toevlucht
The statue of Mary above the entrance of the Schoenmakerskapel (Chapel of the Shoemakers) in Antwerp, Belgium. The chapel is dedicated to Our Lady of Refuge.
For a short while the tiny building was the only place of Catholic worship in the city. This happened during a period of Protestant rule in the 16th century.
