This altar frontal is divided into two levels separated by arches enclosing the Adoration of the Magi, above, and the Presentation in the Temple, below. Both the structure and composition are unusual for this period. Each figure is identified with an inscription. The frontal comes from the church of Nuestra Señora de Peñalba in Arnedillo (La Rioja).
