INSIDE WINGS: FOUNDER AND PATRON SAINT OF THE ORDER
One inside wing depicts founders Sir Walther von Lomersheim and Bishop Gunther of Speyer presenting the Holy Mother with the monastery church. The banner explains that they are asking Mary for her protection. The model of the monastery church that the founders hold in their hands is not very Cistercian as the order requires a church without towers! The other inside wing shows Saint Bernhard von Clairvaux kneeling before the enthroned Mother Mary, making an offering of the church.
