© Patronat d'Estudis Osonencs. The Ribes Baldachin was produced in Ripoll maybe in order to protect and highlight the altar of the Church of Santa Maria of Ripoll around the middle of the twelfth century, as can be deduced from the full and exact identification of the inscriptions around the mandorla, and those of the frieze, which are also restored and whose meaning allows an iconographic and iconological interpretation of the canopy.
