Is Mary the Wisdom figure (Lady Wisdom) in the Old testament?

In the Old testament, Wisdom is often personified as a female figure who invites and leads others to righteousness. This female personification of Wisdom is widely regarded by theologians as a type – someone or something in the Old Testament that prefigures someone in the New Testament. There are various opinions about which New Testament figure Wisdom is prefiguring, but throughout the history of the Church many have made the case that Wisdom is a type of the Virgin Mary. So it’s not that Mary “is” the Wisdom figure; rather, it’s more accurate to say that many people find parallels between the two.
