This large limewood relief sculpture would originally have formed part of a large altarpiece. The Virgin’s father, Joachim, tenderly holds the Infant Child, watched by the Virgin and her mother Anne on either side. The sculpture has been attributed to the circle of the Master I.P., who was one of the most versatile and influential carvers in Southern Germany in the 1520s.
