She is dressed in a long dress and a coat falling in broken pleats on the front. His face has fine lines. It is framed by a veil and a wimple. His gaze, turned towards his daughter, expresses kindness and gentleness.
Young Marie is dressed in a dress with an elegant neckline. A long wavy hair surrounds her face which outlines a pretty smile.

Historical annecdote :
The first representations of Saint Anne appeared in Antiquity, alongside her daughter Marie.
During the Middle Ages, his cult gained importance in the West with the arrival of relics in Chartres. From the thirteenth century we find the first representations of Saint Anne "Trinitarian" with the grandmother (Anne), the mother (Mary) and the son (Jesus).
Devotion to Saint Anne then enjoyed immense success from the fourteenth to the sixteenth century, especially in the countries of northern Europe.
Later, the representations of “Saint Anne educator” will gradually supplant the “Trinitarian Saint Anne”.
