Very beautiful work from a convent of the Carmelite order. According to our information it comes from a church or chapel in the south of France, which is entirely possible given the presence of a relic of Joan of Toulouse considered to be the founder of the Carmelite Third Order.

Carmelites are contemplative nuns belonging to the order of Carmel, founded in the 12th century in the Holy Land. Their life is marked by prayer, meditation and manual work. Generally living in isolated monasteries, they follow a strict rule of community life and silence. Carmelites are known for their devotion to the Virgin Mary, whom they consider their spiritual model. They often wear a distinctive outfit, consisting of a brown dress and a white veil. These devoted women devote their lives to the search for closeness to God, in simplicity and poverty.
