Originally placed on the portal of the New Chancellery in Strasbourg and paired with the head of a man. Interpretations include: a sybil (the woman) and a prophet (the man); and a local tradition of the lovers Graf Jakob von Lichtenberg and his mistress Bärbel von Ottenheim. This plaster cast of the original includes the missing arm.
