Joan of Arc, (1412 – 30 May 1431), nicknamed "The Maid of Orléans" (French: La Pucelle d'Orléans), is a folk heroine of France and a Roman Catholic saint. She was born to a peasant family in north-east France. Claiming divine guidance, she led the French army to several important victories during the Hundred Years' War, which paved the way for the coronation of Charles VII of France. Pretty sure this is the statue in the St. Louis Cathedral-New Orleans, LA
My daughter chose Joan of Arc for her oral book report. I spent the last 3 days making most of her costume and banner from scratch. I think it turned out pretty good considering I've never done something like this before.
