The apple currently displayed with the figure of the Madonna is a reconstruction, made and positioned differently from the original artefact.

We are working on a new reconstruction, in accordance with the archival documentation of the work of art. In order to reduce the weight, the limestone wasn't used. A mass prepared from microballoons, epoxy resin and pigment was used to perform the reconstruction.
