Presentation of Jesus in the Temple

Depicted on the right in the foreground is Our Lady holding the veil in which she carried the Child Jesus. Sitting in front of her on a lavish curule chair on a pink marble platform under a baldachin to indicate his power is Simeon. The old man, like Our Lady, holds the naked Child.
