This elaborately decorated small triptych was used for private devotion. The center depicts Christ’s Nativity. Together, the hinged wings flank the central image to tell the story of the Annunciation to the Virgin. Mary, with an open book in her lap, is on the right panel, while the winged image of the angel Gabriel is on the left.
