Subject Description: Two female temple-attendants, servants of a goddess such as Artemis, are kneeling with an elaborate altar between them. The altar takes the form of a tall candlestick (or candelabrum) with offerings burning on the top and a stand with large floral scrolls at the bottom. The costumes of the attendants, as well as their hairstyle, are designed to recall the Greeks of southern Italy and Sicily. The egg-and-dart molding above and the interlaced waterleaves below provided a continuum. The four nail-holes in the background were for tacking this panel to its architectural setting.
