The beautiful statue of the Virgin Mary was carved out of Kylltal sandstone in 2004 by the Urfter stonemason Reiner Knie. Unknown people destroyed the original Madonna in July 2003. The statue and its base were violently overturned and broke into several parts. Only a few years earlier the Madonna had been restored at the instigation of the Eickser Musikverein. Due to the great damage, however, the statue could no longer be repaired. The acquisition of the new Madonna was made possible by the donations of the citizens of Eickser.
