The Virgin stands within a deeply carved niche, under a shell-like dome reminiscent of a halo. She holds the Christ Child on her right arm and an apple in her left hand. Above her, a man holding palms sits with his legs between some strapwork, his feet resting on a pair of eagles. The palms and the eagles indicate a Christian soul being borne up into heaven, victorious over death. Presumably he has prayed to the Virgin to earn his place there. Probably a panel from choir stalls.
The panel has a later oak frame. Two small replacement pieces to top right and left corners. Panel slightly trimmed all round.
