This relief, depicting the coronation of the Virgin Mary, was created around 1500 by a Tyrolean master. We see here the final story of the life of the Virgin Mary, which says that after the Assumption, Mary received a place at the throne of God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ. Figures on the sides are missing hands which originally held the crown of the Queen of Heaven over the kneeling figure of the Virgin Mary.
