Part of a pair of canopies, both must have originally belonged to an architectural ensemble like a tomb or a choir screen set within a church. Strikingly carved as architecture in miniature, they contain all of the elements of Flamboyant Gothic architecture of the late 15th century, so named after its flame-like stone tracery with wavy ornaments. This style of architecture is characterized by its intricacy of detailing and virtuosity of workmanship. Small sculptures may have originally occupied the space beneath the canopies.
