Another "Our Lady of Consolation"

At St. Augustine parish in Leopold, Indiana:

The statue was brought to the parish in 1867 by several parishioners who were prisoners in Andersonville during the Civil War. They vowed to honor Mary in this fashion if they survived.
UPDATED Link for more information:

There's also a more recent outdoor statue.

The parish's statue of St. Hubertus. (And now you know where the Jagermeister logo comes from.)
