Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description In this composition, of 15th-century Greek invention, the Christ Child grasps his mother's thumb and anxiously fidgets with his feet as the angels show him the instruments of the Passion, the cross, lance, and rod and sponge. The figures appear against a background of flowers in blue dichromic champlevé enamel.
