In this image, the Madonna sits enthroned with the Christ Child, who stands on her right knee and plays with her gilded brooch. In the background, an angel gazes down on the pair while supporting a richly patterned curtain. Saint Lucy stands to the viewer's left, holding the oval mask that is the symbol of her martyrdom. Sain Eloi, a blacksmith, stands on the opposite side of the throne. He holds a single spike in one hand and an anvil, one of his saintly attributes, in the other. The text at the bottom of the work identifies the figures by name: Saint Lucy, Mary, and Saint Eloi.
