Tabernacle affiliated in the late-Renaissance models, based on a classical vocabulary developed in the Italian peninsula in the transition from Renaissance to Mannerism.
Coated with ebony wood, it is decorated with the addition of inlaid stones of different colours and shapes, as well as applications in silver. This reliquary in the shape of a tabernacle, with rectangular base, sits upon four feet of flat wood and is structured in three sections. Each of these is decorated with applications in silver, containing inset stones of various colours and shapes. Between the first and second body, a row of "crux decussata" and flowers covers the whole surface. The central body, flanked by Tuscan columns in marble showns a painting of the Annunciation to the Virgin on alabaster.
