This small wooden piece was constructed as a triptych, with two side panels that can fold over the main panel. It displays religious imagery, with the Virgin Mary at the center. The time period is unclear. The other figures remain unidentified, but are likely religious figures or images of the individuals who commissioned the piece. This item was intended for personal devotion in the home. Although it once belonged to antiquities collector Victoria Aguirre, it now belongs to the collections at the Museo Histórico Nacional del Cabildo y la Revolución de Mayo.
