Virgin is an elegant princess, with high cheekbones, waving locks, and serene expression. The naturalistic colors of Her face take on an almost cosmetic quality in their description of Her red lips and blushing cheeks. The Virgin’s delicate beauty is enhanced by the use of gold on Her hair and garments.

The Child is equally refined. Modeled as a fully round figure, He twists toward the viewer in a graceful, balletic pose as He reaches for the edge of His Mother’s veil.

On the base, an inscription reads AVE MARIA GRATIA PLENA (“Hail Mary Full of Grace”).
