Maria de Torquemada Taking the Veil

Figure descriptions
A young woman dressed in a flowing light-coloured dress and cape stands at the doorway of a convent before a group of three nuns. The woman looks behind her shoulder with an expression of concern on her face. The nun who stands at the front of the group holds one of the woman’s hands in both of hers. The second nun holds a large, thin, and ornate cross up in the air. The convent has pointed, Gothic-style archways and statues set into niches on the building’s façade. There are trees and plants in the background. Full-page illustration contained within a double-ruled border.
