Madonna standing on a crescent moon, with Jesus on her left hand. In this case, the Virgin Mary is depicted as close and similar to the common people - without a veil, a crown and with an unusual type of face, which can be a reflection of a real human model. Marie is dressed in a red dress with a lace-up bodice and layered sleeves and is partially covered by a blue-gold cloak. Both Madonna and Baby Jesus look forward and talk to the observer with hand gestures.
