While looking for images for an utterly unrelated topic, I came across photos of that tomb that has been bugging me since 2008. (Illustrated in Polski Ubior as a sideless surcote and ruffled veil.)

It turns out it isn't Elizabeth of Brandenburg at all, but Anna CieszyƄska (ca. 1324-1367), but at least I had Legnica Cathedral as the correct location.

Here are some photos and drawings:,277712.html,277713.html (With information plaque)

I don't think I was following your LJ yet when this tomb first came up.

That said, I'm glad you were able to correct the reference. I only wish that the photos of the tomb showed the costume better! Some of them are really good but are either taken from the feet or at other weird angles that obscure what she's wearing.

I think I see what the problem is with the photos you link to above. The statues are displayed at way-above head height, so that you really can't get a good look at what's going on at her chest level. Unfortunate.
