  3. The cross makes me think of a nurse too. There is a brand of pencils here called Lyra. It is a pretty name I think.

  5. As soon as I saw her I thought, "a nurse!" I used to wear a nurses cap and was quite proud of my accomplishment on graduation day in 1967. Sadly the dress code changed and now it's really hard to tell who is a Registered Nurse these days. I see kindness and the whimple of a nun in this figure. She is blessing us all with her gaze.
