The statue is in excellent state. The Holy Margaret arises from the back of a dragon that tried to devour her. She prays, holding both hands together. The polychrome was added as follows: on a white base, sheets of gold leaf were added on which was painted with red laqué paint, then gold brocade was added in relief. The dragon is covered with 2 layers of green paint. The paint was brought on on top of a matte layer of gold. Its eyes are red and black.
