St. Dorothy and the Basket Miracle

14th century
Fresco
Church of St. Matthew, Murau, Styria (Austria)

On the right we see Dorothy with the barefoot child. According to the legend, he should have a basket of flowers and apples. She tells him to take the basket to the scribe Theophilus, who is shown on the left receiving it the following winter.

Besides the missing basket on the right, the artist departs from the legend with regard to the child's clothing, which should be purple and "set full of bright stars."
