Description

The large panel shown here was probably the end panel of a stall that faced another across the choir of a Gothic church. The panel is carved with the figure of St. Francis of Assisi kneeling in prayer and receiving the stigmata. Two standing figures also appear on this panel: a nun at the left (perhaps St. Claire) and a female martyr at the right. Below is St. Michael and the dragon.
