The sculpture depicts Madonna in a slight contrapposto pose, with her head tilted to her right arm, holding the Child, facing front, in her right arm. The remains of the original polychrome, visible only in fold creases, imply a once red coloured dress and a blue coloured coat. The crown on Madonna's head was added later. The Child is wearing a long red robe that covers his legs. The hollowed out figure was probably intended to be attached to the niche of an altar retable.
In terms of type and form, the sculpture mimics the sculpture of Our Lady of Altötting of Bavaria, dated around 1330, but it is different from the original when it comes to the presentation of the Madonna's face and modelling of her robe.
