I'm not entirely sure where this little image of St. Agnes came from; while its execution is rather crude, the basic composition is rather intriguing and well-balanced, and a clever fusion of a devotional presentation of the saint with the historic moment of her martyrdom by fire. I also rather like how small and childlike she is in contrast to her flanking guardian angels, and the crucifixion worked into the hilt of her sword.
