Description: Mary is crowned, standing on a crescent moon, between a crowned figure holding a sword and a crowned figure with hands folded in prayer; overhead are three more figures: a woman with a young child, a crippled beggar and a richly dressed man wearing a crown. The Latin superscription reads, "Virtue is the most gracious ornament, to God," and the text below, "What vision is received, which is clothed with the light of heaven? Virtues: these extinguish the rays of silver and gold.".
