The Seven Sorrows of the Virgin by Simon Bening (1525-1530).  Flemmish master Simon Benning's illuminations typically dramatize various episodes of Scripture.  This particular illuminated parchment leaf poignantly captures the seven events in Mary's life that "pierced her soul":

-the Presentation in the Temple

-the Flight into Egypt

-the Dispute in the Temple

-the Way to Calvary

-the Crucifixion

-the Lamentation

The plaque mounted image makes for a unique gift, treasured for years to come due to its quality UV protection matte finish and washable surface.  The wood plaque measures 3/8" thick with beveled and finished edges.
