Original woodcarving by Orejudo. He represents the Mother of God, holding in her left arm to her son and an apple in the right hand. With the cross section of the fruit pulp in five-pointed star, symbol of Greek wisdom is drawn. In Eden there is an apple tree: the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Wisdom would have symbolized as the two connotations in the block. Representing the Virgin and child in this way, it leads to the idea of the wisdom of the Son of God.
