It is much older than structure of the altar, where it is located – in the main area - as well as the temple in Zabierzów, which was built in the years 1878-1881. The work depicts Madonna and the Child standing on the crescent together with the anonymous funders shown in a reduced scale. Mary was imagined in the Immaculate Conception type.
