The Sedes Sapientiae, also known as Our Lady of Leuven, is a medieval wooden statue of the Virgin Mary. Nicolaas De Bruyne carved the statue in 1442, copying and enlarging an earlier and smaller statue from the 13th century. The polychromy was done by Roelof van Velpen. It has been restored several times: in 1842 by the Goyers workshop and in 1945 by Jos Van Uytvanck. It is located in St Peter's Church in the heart of the city of Leuven, Flanders. It is the symbol of the Catholic University of Leuven, and is depicted in the university's seal.
