The statue of Our Lady was photographed outside of Our Lady of Victories Church. However, what I found to be remarkable is the beautiful blue eyes of the statue, which I payed no attention to while photographing the icon. It wasn't until I arrived at home and examined the photos that I recognized the beauty of the artwork. The statue does show some signs of aging with paint beginning to peel off in areas.The Catholic church is located on 100 Fair Street in Paterson, NJ, USA.
