About the image: In this stained glass panel, the Queen of Heaven is shown, outshining the transitory and evanescent nature of all other realms, just as the sun dissipates the light of the moon. Painted by the Circle of the Master of the Amsterdam Cabinet, the figure is painted in a soft and delicate manner and is an excellent example of what can be achieved on glass.
