Altarpiece with the Kinship of St. Anne, Brabant, Brussels, around 1500-1510, polychrome oak. Provenance: Sainte-Anne chapel of the Val Duchesse in Auderghem (Brussels). Musee du Cinquantenaire (Brussels, Belgium). Made with ReMake and ReCap Pro form AutoDesk.
The relationship of St. Anne (Anne, Mary, Jesus and their family members) is a kind of family tree that is also found in the Tree of Jesse. Moreover, Anne, Mary and Jesus symbolize the earthly Trinity, the counterpart of the heavenly Trinity constituted by the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, represented in the form of a dove.
