This incredibly early carved work depicts the Enthroned Virgin and Child or Sedes Sapientiae (‘Throne of Wisdom’). The association of the Blessed Virgin with glory and teaching was popularised in Catholic imagery from the mid 11th Century. Mary sits, enthroned, the Christ Child is swaddled in robes. The head of the Virgin is oblong with a high forehead, with no crown. Her robes and veil which retain much original polychrome are blue symbolic of the Heavenly sky, and Red as a reminder of the blood of Christ.
