Back predella section of the Maestą
by DUCCIO di Buoninsegna

The pictures of the predella on the back side of the altarpiece depict the temptations and miracles of Christ. Eight of the nine scenes survived, one, probably with the Baptism of Christ (scene 1) is lost.

You can view the location of the panels in the digital reconstruction of the whole altarpiece.
