A wall sculpture hollowed out from behind. It depicts Mother of God in a gentle contrapposto, bent in the shape of a reversed “S”, wearing a gilded dress of a warm red tone as well as a gilded coat on a silver lining with an olive glaze. Mary has a veil and a crown on her head. In her right hand, Madonna is holding Infant Jesus in a gilded dress.

The sculpture dates back to the beginning of the 15th century (around 1400) and is regarded as a transitional” sculpture and one of the oldest in the Małopolska region, showing the influence of the International Gothic style.
