Joachim and Anna had long been childless, until one day Anna’s prayers were answered and she miraculously became pregnant with the Virgin Mary. Overjoyed by this news, the couple embraces each other tenderly. This intimate, almost timeless statue was once part of a large altar dedicated to the life of the Virgin.
