Enthroned side by side, Christ as Savior of the World blesses his mother Mary, crowned Queen of Heaven for her divine maternity. In return, Mary bows her head in prayerful devotion, appealing for the redemption of humankind. The development of early printing methods during the 15th century offered more people personal devotional images that were previously limited to less affordable media, like paintings, sculptures, or illuminated manuscripts. This image was originally drawn by Martin Schongauer.
