This ornate vintage French medal depicts Saint Barbara in front of the three-windowed tower.  A floral crown of martyrdom graces her head and she holds a palm and holy chalice. The Chalice is a symbol of the Sacrament and often associated with Saint Barbara in reference to her final wish for the grace of Sacrament. Saint Barbara is the only female saint to be depicted with the communion chalice and wafer.  Her palm is symbol of martyrdom, in reference to Jesus's entry into Jerusalem. The three-windowed tower is a reference to Saint Barbara's legend and a symbol of the Holy Trinity
