The parquetted lunette faithfully reproduces the canvas now in the Louvre, of which another version is known, preserved in the Holy House of Loreto. The panel presented here, while showing a drier style and greater staticity compared to the previously mentioned canvases, is a faithful copy of it, testifying the fame that Lorenzo Lotto's invention must have enjoyed. The panel has a long slit in the central part, drops of color and rises in the pictorial surface.
