The altar presents three views. A complicated structure with four layers of painted surfaces--two sets of folding wings, like a double cupboard, enclosing the final altarpiece, which consists of three carved wood statues of saints by Nikolaus Hagenauer and Desiderius Beichel. There are also two side panels and a predella.
