A wayside shrine is a religious image, usually in some sort of small shelter, placed by a road or pathway, sometimes in a settlement or at a crossroads, but often in the middle of an empty stretch of country road, or at the top of a hill or mountain. Some mark parish or other boundaries, such as the edge of a landholding, or have a function as convenient markers for travelers to find their way. Hand-crafted and hand-painted porcelain figurine accessory.
