Description

A rare large broadside represents a wooden tympanum, made in 1429, in the church of St. Sebaldus in Nuremberg, Germany. The upper part in a Gothic form is dominated by Maria Lactans, with Sister Christina Ebner (1277 –1356), a German Dominican nun, writer and mystic on the right-hand side, as a row below is decorated by portraits of the members of the Nuremberg family Ebner.

The engraving was made circa 1750 by a Nuremberg based engraver Johann Wilhelm Stör (1705-1765).

Although the broadside is mentioned in old literature we could not find any examples in institutions.
