The Virgin Mary is crowned Queen of Heaven by God the Father and Jesus Christ at the same time. The Holy Ghost, appears above them in the form of a dove, occupying the upper vertex of a rhombus formed by the four figures.
This work is based on a print by Albrecht Dürer. Various similar versions of it exist, including the one painted for the parish church of Talavera la Vieja (Cáceres), which is now at the Monastery of Guadalupe.
It is signed in lowercase Greek letters at the bottom right.
