The outside of the chapel had little scenes, arranged like the stations of the cross, but instead dealing with events in Jesus' life that involved Mary.
They start with a scene where Mary presented Jesus at the temple for whatever rituals were normal for male infants at the time. A blind cleric named Simon had a flash on insight and recognized the baby Jesus as the messiah.
"De voorzegging van Simeon."
My elementary school was named for Saint Simon. There is also a Saint Simon who is the patron of buisiness (shown in modern icons sitting with a bag of money on his lap, holding a shotgun (at least on a holy candle I saw once)). I don't know if it is the same St Simon or a different one.
Anyway, this picture was taken in Belgium, south of Antwerp
