The Virgin with Christ seated on her lap is flanked, on the left, by two magi, and, on the right, by a seated Joseph; the third magus is missing. The group, which may have originally been made for the main portal, was, at a later date, set into a side wall of the church at Cerezo de Riotirón. The rhythmic pleats, hook folds, and blocky masses of the figures are characteristic of Castillian sculpture in the late 12th century.
