Dear reader,

Have you seen this statue before? It is located at the seaside, overlooking the sea. The photo was taken on a voyage in the 1930s, from Europe to Hong Kong. It resembles Maria, or a female praying for the safe return of people at sea. The statue and surroundings look Italian to me. The shape of the door opening has oriental resemblance. What are your thoughts on this?
