The star-haloed Virgin holds the infant Jesus in her arms. She is standing in front of a throne with Byzantine motifs, inlaid with colored stones. With his legs curled up, the child raises his arms, making the gesture of Christ blessing. In a circle around them, angels, whose female faces are turned towards the Virgin and the child, are represented in different attitudes, hands joined, or placed on the chest. The two kneeling angels in the foreground hold censers.
