Throne of Wisdom

13th century
Museum of the Convent of St. John the Baptist, Müstair, Switzerland.

The "Throne of Wisdom" iconographic type is a sculpture such as pictured here. The child holds a book while "enthroned" on the lap of his mother, who in turn sits on a throne of her own. Mary's crown is seen in some other examplars (example) but by no means all.
