In the year 303 a thirteen year old Roman Christian virgin named Eulalia was put in a barrel full of knives and nails and rolled down the street. Her breasts were then cut off. She was crucified on an X- shaped cross and then decapitated.
As she died, a dove flew out of her breast and she ascended to Heaven.
