Production place
A surreal image featuring an assembly of different people adoring a female figure (wearing a head scarf and crown) and a young girl with a halo. The assembly includes three nuns wearing white coifs and different coloured wimples. The nun at left is clutching a cross to her chest, the nun at centre is clutching a bag of money to her chest. The nun at right has her palm raised to face the queen and angel. There is a young girl at centre wearing a hair ribbon and holding a bouquet and there is a green tree form behind her. She is flanked by two men: one is dressed in priestly/ military regalia holding a model of a church in his palm, and the other in a business suit and holding a castle in his palm. The castle is inscribed with the name "ITALIC". The group is set against a high rise city scene; a running crowd of figures is seen between the queen and nun on the left side.
