So, where does the painting end and the ornate decoration begin? It was the colours that got me but then I noticed how that wing extends beyond the frame...

Not being religious at all, I'm not sure what the painting exactly depicts and I haven't been able to find out very much about the painting other than the artist was a german, Ludwig Seitz, and it was painted in the late 1800s.

His style seemed to develop towards rich colours and pious subjects both of which are quite obvious here. As far as I can tell, it's about the virtuous nature of hard work and good deeds but I welcome any further insights.
