The Virgin Mary sits, wearing long draped robes. She has a long hood, a long, wide nose, and a small mouth. On her lap she holds a seated figure of a robed child Jesus. The child’s features are worn; the top half of his face and most of his arms are missing. There are also four holes in the child’s chest. The surface of the woman’s chest and shoulders are carved in a way that suggests rays radiating out from around the child’s head. A brooch-like object at the woman’s neck has several holes in it.
