Altarpiece of St. Anthony the Abbot

A young St. Anthony, shown in the upper left scene, shares his considerable wealth among a group of poor people gathered about, who receive him with great joy. The scene of the infant Jesus, who shows to his mother one of the coins he has received, justly stands out. Especially interesting, in terms of iconography, is the representation of the storage of money, in bags (bolsas) guarded in a box or chest locked with a key.
