On May 15, the International Family Day is celebrated. We present a detail of the small oval silver plaque, placed in a case, representing the "Holy Family", Our Lady, the Child Jesus and St. Joseph. The Child holds an apple in his hand, which he takes from a branch, in which Hendrick Goltzius’ initials H G were inscribed.
Happy Family Day!
