Pair of 16th-century French oak panels showing two of the Four Elements personified as classical goddesses holding up their crowns of leaves: Earth rests her right hand on a cornucopia of flowers to show the fruitfulnesss of the land, while Water rests her left hand on an upturned urn spilling its contents back into the ground or a river.

Carved trees and incised flowers decorate the background of both panels.

Both panels are made in sections: Earth, in three sections, also has a very narrow replacement strip at the right-hand edge; Water is made in two sections.
