St. Dorothy and the Basket

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

The child in the legend is said to be barefoot and dressed in purple "with crisp hairs, whose garment was set full of bright stars." This image gets everything but the purple. Dorothy is telling him to take the basket to the scribe Theophilus.
