Mary kneels in prayer as she is crowned by the Holy Trinity– the Father and Son as mirror images bearing attributes of their power (crowns, an orb representing the earth, and a scepter) and the Holy Ghost as a dove. The carving of the mother-of-pearl, a brittle material difficult to work, is exceptionally fine.
