Of All of the Virgins

Pictured against a highly illuminated, golden ground (alluding to God´s presence) is a crowd of women on clouds, almost all with haloes and long, uncovered hair, kneeling with their hands joined either in prayer or imploring. The first of them, in the foreground as if at the head of the other maidens and because her hair is covered by fine sendal, might be Our Lady. She reads the large, gilt-edged codex with red covers in her hands attentively. In the background is a virgin Queen, identifiable by her crown.
