This unique roundel represents the Journey of the Holy Family to Egypt woven on a red background. In the center, in a square frame, the Virgin Mary -with the halo encircled her head- seats on the donkey carrying Christ-child. Behind her there is a building. Next to the Virgin there are two figures; one probably is St. Joseph and the other is Salome, the cousin and the mid-wives of the Virgin. The central scene is surrounded by eight figures; four standing andthe other four riding on animals at the corner.
