Notes

This polychrome sculpture with an adoration scene, shows a kneeling female patron, surrounded by the holy family. It was not uncommon for patrons who commissioned the sculpture to be portrayed. Some slight overpaint is visible, mainly in the flesh tones (‘inkarnaten’), probably from a restauration in the 19th century.
