Panel 06 - The Virgin enthroned with Christ
Description:
Note that this is not the Coronation of the Virgin, as one would normally expect (and as the scene is described in the CVMA Recensement volume) but instead shows the Virgin already crowned and seated alongside her son, as Queen of Heaven (Regina coeli). Mother and son are seated on the same throne and are shown conversing - the image is therefore focused on the Virgin's intercessory role rather than her glorification.
