Uta of Naumburg

'The Most Beautiful Woman of the German Middle Ages' 

Not so long ago I came across this beautiful face and I thought

"This is probably the prettiest face I have ever seen carved in stone."
So taken by her was I, that I was eager to find out who exactly she was.

Eventually I found out that she was Uta of Naumburg.

I then looked up the word beauty in the dictionary and one definition was
 "a form that pleases the aesthetic senses, esp. the sight."
Didn't the master craftsman who created this image of Uta get that right.  ​
