Yes, that sounds like a better suggestion than mine!

See Dante, Divina Commedia, Paradiso 33,1: 

Vergine madre, figlia del tuo Figlio,

Umile ed alta piú che creatura, 

Termine fisso d'eterno consiglio.

Could this be a variant of the Virgin as daughter of her son (depicted in stained glass in Gresford, north Wales - and Andrew Breeze has written an article on this - ‘The Virgin Mary, daughter of her son’. Études Celtiques 27, 1990, 267-83

My guess is it's a variant of the Coronation of the Virgin.  At her dormition, the Virgin is often shown as a baby-like soul being held by God, so this is a sort of sequel to that.  However, if so it raises more theological questions.  As I understand it, the Virgin had a bodily assumption, so it was not her soul that was crowned but her bodily self- maybe the artist has miniaturised her crowned person to maintain the physical relationship of the soul-to-God usually seen in the dormition

Greetings all!
I have an iconographical question. On the Swedish site Medeltidens bildvarld (with an umlaut over the a)
a search for St. Ursula reveals an interesting altarpiece from Halsingland, Forsa, see:

I am frustrated by my inability to zoom in on this (any suggestions)? I'm assuming one of the female saints at the bottom left  must be  Ursula, but I'm really curious about the central figures, for which my first reaction was that this was God the Father  with the Virgin Mary on his lap. If so, this is completely new to me! Any suggestions?
