This is a carving of a well-known woman in the Bible. She was a Samaritan woman living in Schechem (modern-day Nablus in the West Bank). Due to her status as a lowly woman and an immoral prostitute, she was ostracized. She was also considered an enemy of the Jews.
This story is greatly cherished by believers for its portrayal of the mercy, grace and love Jesus had for the outcasts. Simply by speaking with her Jesus broke the strict religious taboos and cultural expectations of his day. In doing so He demonstrated that he had come for all people, regardless of race or gender. Regardless of their backgrounds they grew up in.
