Benozzo has placed the Madonna standing in frontal view, common in the early Middle Ages, within an architectural framework. The dark blue cloak of the Mother of God is draped across the balustrade, thus creating the impression that she is about to step out of the ciborium. With her left hand she is embracing the Christ Child, who, as a sign of his dominion over the world, is holding a globe in his hand, on which the names of the continents known at that time, ASIA, EVROPIA and AFRICA are written. He is not represented in the form of a child but as an adult in miniature, solemnly dressed in a tunic and red pallium.
