Description The Virgin Mary is usually shown crowned by Christ and God the Father. Here, the artist has used the device of angels (possibly as 'Regina angelorum' - Queen of angels). There is a sharp division between the upper and lower parts of the composition which might suggest the contrast between the earthly and heavenly aspects of the Virgin Mary's life. The landscape would appear to be from a different hand, being in a style reminiscent of Joachim Patinir.
