Now placed on the high altar, it consists of one hundred and twenty-three embossed gilded silver plates. The central part is occupied by a Madonna and Child between the archangels Michael and Gabriel, while at the sides there are twenty-five figures of saints. It is framed by a sequence of twenty-three biblical characters and the full figure of the client, Patriarch Pellegrino II.
