The Madonna, standing on a half moon bearing the head of a demon, is holding the Christ Child in her right arm. The unshrouded Virgin Mary has a crown on her head and is wearing a white dress with a red bodice and gold mantle with decorated edges. The Christ Child has an apple in his hand - a symbol of sovereign power. The facial features, method used to carve the hair and deeply-carved flowing drapery all indicate that the work was created in the western Bohemia area around 1500. The statue is in very good condition with preserved original polychrome painting.
