These pinnacles were originally set atop a multi-part altarpiece that has now been broken up (for an example of how such pinnacles were arranged, see the altarpiece by Ugolino in this gallery). The gestures and glances of the angels suggest that they were placed to the left and right of a central image.

These works were made under the influence of the painter Duccio, who dominated art in Siena with his graceful and intimate figures.
