A French carved limestone relief with the Visitation

15th century

Centred by the figures of Mary and Elizabeth, the latter placing her hand on Mary's belly, the figures flanked by columns ending in pinnacles and surmounted by a pointed arch crowned by a crocket, a blind arcade, and a hollow cornice decorated with four flower heads. An example of the Gothique Flamboyant (Flamboyant Gothic), a late Gothic style which would transition into French Renaissance architecture.
