Title:The Incredulity of Thomas

The Maestà, or Maestà of Duccio is an altarpiece composed of many individual paintings commissioned by the city of Siena in 1308 from the artist Duccio di Buoninsegna, from which several panels are now dispersed or lost. The front panels make up a large enthroned Madonna and Child with saints and angels, and a predella of the Childhood of Christ with prophets.

The reverse has the rest of a combined cycle of the Life of the Virgin and Life of Christ in a total of forty-three small scenes. Though it took a generation for its effect truly to be felt, Duccio's Maestà set Italian painting on a course leading away from the hieratic representations of Byzantine art towards more direct presentations of reality. -- from Wikipedia
