St. Catherine of Sweden

Museum Silent Night Museum Oberndorf
Location Oberndorf

Figure of St. Catherine of Sweden in a glazed wooden shrine, together with a deer. The figure has a wax head with glass eyes, similar to the figures in nativity scenes. She is dressed in princely fashion as the daughter of royalty (daughter of St. Bridget of Sweden). This shrine is believed to have been owned by Josef Mohr.
