The provenance of these three images from Sant Feliu de Guíxols and their colourful polychromy, characteristic of the mid-seventeenth century, support the hypothesis that they would be related to the activity by the workshop of the sculptor Domènec Rovira linked to the church of the Benedictine monastery in Sant Feliu, especially from 1657 when he made the main altarpiece.
