Saint Barbara was an early Christian martyr that was born to a rich pagan family. Her father kept her locked in a tower to preserve her from the outside world. During captivity, she secretly became a Christian and devoted herself to her faith. When she revealed herself as a Christian to her father, he tried to kill her, but she was miraculously transported to a mountain gorge. She was found and tortured before eventually being beheaded by her father. The Saint Barbara statue portrays the saint holding a tower to symbolize her captivity.
