Did you know?

On the outer wings moving clockwise are Saints Peter and Paul, Saints Christopher and Erasmus, Saint Barbara and a holy nun, and Saints George and James Major.


This small winged altarpiece, called a triptych, was undoubtedly made for private use. The donor and his wife are shown in the lower central scene kneeling before the Virgin, her mother Saint Anne, and the Christ Child. Above is the Epiphany with the Three Kings presenting gifts to a tightly swaddled Christ.
