The Virgin, slightly swayed, carries the Child on her left arm. She is wrapped in a long coat that covers her hair and wraps around her right arm. The child, chubby and chubby, laughing face, is half-naked. He is eagerly sucking his mother's high-placed, bouncing breast. On the leaning face of the Virgin floats an expression of dreamy tenderness.
This sculpture, the original of which is in fruit wood, now monochrome, was, like the stone sculpture of that period, enhanced by polychrome: generally the Virgin was wrapped in a blue veil over a red dress, her coat wearing a golden decoration.
