Saints Joachim and Anna

Sacristy of the Franciscan Monastery, Zadar, Croatia

Identification of the saints, artist, and date was provided by a label in the sacristy. Joachim does not have any traditional attributes, but in other works his beard is often similar to the one on this statue. The garb is what one usually sees on medieval images of personages from the time of Christ.
