Actually, she's not ... but it's amazing how our modern brain interprets that situation, right?
Gail Worley of the awesome blog Worleygig (seriously, check it out) went to The Met and saw this 1855 marble statue "Indian Girl, or The Dawn of Christianity," by Erasmus Dow Palmer. Like many of us, she immediately thought "doesn't it look like she's checking her Instagram feed or catching up on Tweets?"
It turns out that the object that the Indian Girl was looking at is a crucifix, not a smart phone. Could've fooled us, though.
