Sint-Jan Nepomucenus

Bruges Belgium
According to ...
This 1767 statue is of a Czech martyr, who happens to be the patron saint of bridges (the connection arises from his having been tossed off of one in Prague for offending the king).

Really nicely framed. Like how you can't tell the scale - could be a huge or tiny statue.
