The right hand of the mourning woman grasps the ends of the white headscarf that reaches across the shoulders. She wears a gilded skirt and coat, her fodder blue.
Stylistically, the piece of Regensburg art is close. The compositional qualities of the anonymous carver are testified by the tensioned bent body and the shirred, shrouded in asymmetrical folds of the all-sided figure. In addition, the hem, which frames the face. Presumably the sculpture comes from a group of the burial of Christ. The handle of the veil is a common mourning gesture, which means the drying of the tub.
