The marble bas-relief depicts, within a small prospectival environment, the Virgin with the Child in her arms, that holds a pomegranate, crowned by two angels in flight.
Her throne is characterized by classical shaped sphinx armrests. At her feet stands the commissioner’s figurine religiously knelt down and bearing the beret in his hands.
It is a fine example of Renaissance sculpture to report to one of the Lombard artists of lauranesca education, active in Naples in the second half of the 15th century.
