Description:  The Cistercian nun is a representative of the mysticism of the heart of Jesus. In her vision an angel sitting on clouds handed the heart of Jesus to her. She is usually represented with scales and sword. The statue is the pair of St Gertrude from Bakonybél. They adorned the same alter and were made by the same hand. The statues may be in connection with the saint nuns on the altar St Scholastica in the abbey of Tihany.
