Virgin and Child carved linden, polychrome and gilt, carved back. Standing and swaying, her head tilted to the right, she carries the naked child on her left side; face of great sweetness, with bulging forehead, slit eyes with swollen lower eyelids, tiny mouth with well defined lips, small round chin and is wearing a long dress breaking ground and a raised coat over her shoulder including a right pan covers the front of his body forming an apron; soft pleats on the front and cascading down the sides.

With her swaying, and her head bowed, the Virgin announced the Beautiful Madonnas of the Bohemian school, created around 1400. Here, the drawing of the figure S is not yet very pronounced as it will be later. Her slender elegance and prettiness of her child make a sculpture of a rare quality.
