These pieces formed part of a chasuble, chalice cover and stole set designed by Gaspar Homar. All the pieces were designed for the Hermitage of Sant Jaume d’Aiguafreda in Begur, but the work was left unfinished owing to an accident in which a nephew of the farm owners died.


The motifs depicted are ears of wheat, vine tendrils and grapes as symbols of the Eucharist.
