St Catherine at St Albans

Of course when visiting a great church (or even a small one) I've never looked round before my eyes are peeled for images of St Catherine, and at St Albans Cathedral on Thursday I noticed not one, but three, in the south transept, the Lady Chapel, and the south aisle.

They all look very late-Victorian or early 20th-century to me. The earnest-faced one in the crowned turban is my favourite. Although the first has crown, book and sword, there's no hint of a wheel, which is unusual.
