Who do you guys think this figure is?

EDIT:
Thanks guys, I'm gonna have to agree that its probably St. Rose of Lima. She and St. Catherine of Siena do have similar symbolism, but very different personalities. St. Rose is more demure, when I compare images.

Saint Catherine of Siena. She is one of the few who is typically shown with a crown of thorns and the crucifix. Rather than shafts of wheat, I'm guessing a depiction of lilies.

I didn't see a crown of thorns - where was it?

Hard to see, but it's hooked on her right arm.

Um, it's right there in the item description.

She holds a crufifix and has a crown of thorns on her arm - there also are shafts of wheat that are @ her feet


Misspellings are part of the description, not mine.

I paid very little attention. My bad.
