This one is really beautiful. Great angel.

Okay, being, as you know, a bit of an ignoramus, I had to look up the word, "caryatid." But, wait, before you laugh too loudly, I had heard of the word before.

So, this lovely lady is actually holding up the building! With her wings. That's wings of power!

P.S. To Trillian - thank you so much for your very kind comments regarding our new great-grandbaby! You are very sweet!

@ Jacob - I am not even sure that a bas-relief could be called a caryatid...

So striking! And pink or orange windows at the top, too. Nice!
