This beautiful statue of Temperance is in the Portinari Chapel, in the Basilica of San Eustorgio in Milan. She appears rather aloof as she pours water into the wine, thereby tempering its intoxicating properties.

This livelier Temperance is at a church in Logumkloster, Denmark. She appears to be a multidimensional Tarot card.
