A widely used iconography in the Genoese Baroque, it was initially the pride of one of the city's most prestigious Palazzi dei Rolli.
The sculptor's skill was to create a spiral movement that lifts Mary up to heaven, praying with her arms folded as she looks down at the ground. The putti below are supporting the Virgin,
and at the base, on the cloud supporting her, are apocalyptic symbols such as the crescent moon and the defeated dragon, an allusion to John's apocalypse and the plague defeated as the result of Mary's meditation.
The refinement of the dress and the purity of the woman figure blend perfectly to create an exceptional compositional harmony.
