They are ready to be hung, either outdoors in the garden or in the home for decoration.

Note: In Italy you can see these pieces outdoors, cemented to the wall, as a benediction to the house.
The image on the small plate, “Madonna of the Chair”, illustrates the Madonna sitting on a chair (a portion of the “chair” can be seen at the left side) with the Child in her arms and the child St. John next to them, holding a cross.
This is a referral to the apocryphal topic of the meeting of St. John with Jesus Child, as the two met when they were still in the womb of the respective mothers and then in adult age in the desert when he introduces Christ to the people as the only Messiah.
