The mantle is lined in red. Vestiges of blue outline its folds, but the gold beneath, in a stylized pattern of curling petals, is in good condition. The robe has a round, softly gathered red collar and is caught at the waist by a gold sash tied in a double bow. The robe itself is gold, with a pattern of tiny flowers and dots. A red undergarment shows at the cuffs.
There is damage to the fingers of the right hand, the thumbs have been lost, and the outer edge of the left palm has split away. The hair falls smoothly to below the shoulders.

The horn of the moon on the Virgin's right has broken away.
