Thanks for helping me in this. I found a link to a description in English with an illustration that perfectly matches my picture, I will paste it into the edited text

This is called the Dormition ("falling asleep") of the Virgin Mary, so your guess was correct. The child in Christ's hands represents Mary's spirit that he is taking to heaven.
