The Holy Family and St. Leonard

Church of St. Rupert, Weißpriach, Austria

St. Anne sits to the left of Mary and holds the Christ Child. Between them stands the child John the Baptist, wearing his camel-hair tunic and holding a staff with a banderole.

On the right, the man holding Mary's arm is her father, St. Joachim; opposite him on the left is St. Joseph with the lily stalk that serves as his attribute.

Above the scene in the painting is God the Father, and above him in the niche is a statue of St. Leonard with his attribute, a chain.

The panel in the far right of the photograph pictures St. Christina. See this page for a discussion of that image.
