A panel of an altarpiece dedicated to several advocacies. Saint Catherine, crowned, as a Holy Virgin should be, holds in one hand the palm of martyrdom and, in the other, a sword, with witch she’s threatening the emperor, lying on the floor. At the Saint’s side, there’s the spiked wheel, instrument used in one of the martyrs that she was submitted to.
