Duccio's Maesta


                                                                                                                   The Central pinnacle

   This section is missing. General opinion is that it featured
the Ascension of Christ, with  Christ in glory above.  Using work by different artists, I've tried to suggest some idea of what this section may have looked like. 
   An alternative suggestion is that the panel would be topped with an image of God the Father. This could apply to both back and front of the Maesta. 



Top:  Manfredino da Pistoia Christ in Glory among Angels. Fresco, San Bartolomeo in Pantano, Pistoia
Bottom: Ascension of Christ. Giotto di Bondone . Scrovegni Chapel, Padua
