Possibly a fragment of a ‘holy Kinship’ composition. St. Anne was the mother of Mary. The work shows traces of original polychromy in deep crevices. This beautiful composition is nearly all drapery, presented in sharp angles and folds. The actual figure shows the dramatic stylization that Riemenschneider was capable of.
This piece is located in Munich’s Bavarian National Museum, the Bayerisches Nationalmuseum.
