Descriptive Notes
 

The seal of the provost depicts the Virgin Mary with Christ child at the top. Both are depicted with halos. The Christ child touches Mary's breast affectionately. Beneath a gothic-style arch appears a larger figure standing before seven other figures, (perhaps the provost standing before the nuns or perhaps Christ standing before the seven wise virgins). The inscription reads "S. prepositi in Winhusen."
