Medieval painting were very religious paintings and it was always symbolize god. The painting Madonna and child with saints was made of Egg tempera used on wood and sometimes add a little bit of gold to it. Gold was frequent use for background to symbolize the holy atmosphere of heaven. The egg tempera dried out very quickly, so if you want to make any changes at the end, then it was hard to make any.

People who had halos around their head were the residents of heaven. Hieratic scale represent the sizes of things according to their importance.
