St Joan of Arc is a timeless figure, a modern Boudica. It's interesting to look at the art created featuring her: the statues all over the world, the paintings. There are different interpretations of her banner, her clothing, her stature. Looking at how a subject is portrayed over time is very interesting--look at biblical figures, Greek and Roman myths, Shakespearean characters, medieval heroes and villains.
