Curiouser and Curiouser

Graveyard art doesn't usually perplex me, but this particular example does. I can't figure out if this is supposed to be Jesus crawling towards the cross, but the figure looks distinctly female to me. Perhaps it is the Virgin Mary? Or Mary Magdalene? Who knows, either way, it's interesting to look at.

Edit: I finally found out the meaning behind this statue! It represents how we are lost in a sinful world, and our only option is to cling to Christ and the goodness that the cross stands for.
