A Crowned Female Figure (Saint Elizabeth of Hungary?)

Both this work and 'A Female Saint' are fragments from the decorative border of a large fresco, and were perhaps originally hexagons.

These works, together with 'A Group of Poor Clares' by Pietro Lorenzetti's brother Ambrogio Lorenzetti, are from S. Francesco, Siena, either from the cloister or the Chapter House.
