This design was probably intended for metalwork, such as a finial or the ornament surmounting a processional mace. It depicts the Virgin of Mount Carmel and Child as experienced in the vision of Saint Simon Stock, a twelfth-century Carmelite friar: the Virgin presented him with a scapular—an article of devotion composed of two small woolen squares— held aloft by the angel at right. The drawing may have been made for the Scuola Grande dei Carmini, Venice, in the 1740s.
