The statue is Descent of the Spirit (to Mary, and the world). The statue was a gift to the Abbey, and “she” came with a dowry, enough money to build the cloisters surrounding her. The pillars are all gloriously carved, some birds, some flowers, plants, some people. I have taken many photos of them in the past.
