Description:
The two saints Christina and Ottilia are shown standing against a black background beneath golden garlands of fruit. St Christina wears a golden brocade dress and stands on a millstone, the symbol of her martyrdom. St Ottilia is dressed as a nun and holds a book in her hands upon which rest a pair of eyes, as according to legend she was blinded.
