SYMBOLS Stories of cultural life.

Female figure

On their own, female figures symbolize love, and when they appear with children they represent charity.  

They also symbolize the Seven Christian Virtues (shown as female figures with their attributes) comprising the Four Cardinal Virtues of Wisdom (represented by a book), Fortitude (represented by a scythe), Temperance (represented by a column) and Justice (represented as blindfolded with scales).
