According to tradition, it is associated with the Relief of Vienna. When, after the victory over the Turks, the army of King Jan Sobieski was returning to Poland, several soldiers stopped in Biecz. In gratitude for defeating the pagans and ending the war unscathed, the soldiers left this small portable altar in the church in Biecz.
The altar consists of three parts (a triptych). It is leather-bound with edgings. Religious scenes are depicted on the wings. There are three steel engraved graphics. In the centre, the crucified Christ is surrounded by two people and the instruments of the Passion, on the left stands the Good Shepherd, and on the right – Pieta with the Mother of God pierced with seven swords of sorrows. The scenes are bordered with flower motifs.
