I don't know a lot about this item but it is apparently vintage -- I bought it at an auction with some other older items. I know there are some brass rubbings of this artwork but I don't think this is one of them.

This framed print is about 35 x 22 inches and according to a piece of paper that was attached to the back, this is a copy of some artwork that was found in the 7th century Abbey of Nivelles. The piece of paper reads:

Sister Marguerite De Scornay
1462
Nivelles, Belgium.

The 7th Century Abbey of Nivelles survived through the Middle Ages, only to be destroyed in the last war. This fragment alone survives of a much larger brass and is one of the best preserved of Flemish brasses. Marguerite was Abbess from 1443-1462. She built the Great Gate and founded a Daily Mass. She is shown being presented to be enthroned Virgin and Child by her patron Saint, St. Margaret. Legend has it that St. Margaret was imprisoned and martyred for her faith, during which the time she was temped by the devil in the form of a dragon; she chased him away by the sign of the Cross, thus the beast depicted here represents the devil.
The symbols of the four Evangelists appear in the corners, with a rich tapestry of griffins, interwoven branches and foliage. The shields are probably the arms of Marguerite's family, proving her required nobility.

Bid with confidence. This is a nice item in a nice wood frame.
