Yes, you can find these lovely statues at St Denis. Her nose is so aquiline in the first portrait! Is this how she really looked in profile?

I think so too. It was characteristic for the Hapsburg dynasty, especially among the Spanish Hapsburg, but they were all a bit degenerated because of the incests in their family, which was not the case with Austrian Hapsburg.

if you look at how her hand is on her breast and then look at a picture that Marie-Teresa (MA daughter) commissioned when she mistakenly thought she was pregnant its the same. Mabye it represents fertility?
