The Holy Kinship and Anna Selbdritt

The holy kinship is the extended family of Jesus descended from his grandmother St. Anne (Anna). According to a tradition Anne had three husbands. From each of these marriages a daughter was born: Mary (mother of Jesus), Mary Cleophas (mother of James the Lesser and Joseph, Simon and Thaddeus), and Mary Salome (mother of apostles John and James the Greater). "Anna selbdritt" is Anne portrayed with Mary and the Christ child.
