St Bibiana is a sculpture by the Italian artist Gianlorenzo Bernini. It sits in the high altar of the church of Santa Bibiana, Rome. It shows St. Bibiana holding the palm leaf of martyrs, standing next to the column to which she was to be martyred. The bodies of St Bibiana (Viviana or Vibiana), and her mother and sister, and now rest inside an alabaster urn under the major altar. The column just inside the church is said to be the one Bibiana was strapped to.
