Portrait of Christ at the centre, surrounded by scenes in roundels with a decorative, architectural border. At the bottom, the Last Supper is set alongside the Wedding at Cana. Above the Last Supper: the Nativity, Christ among the Doctors of the Law, the entry into Jerusalem and Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane. The Ascension is at the top, and down from the top on the right are the flagellation and mocking of Christ, Christ falling as he carries the cross and the Crucifixion. In the architectural borders are set images of the Virgin and Child and St Joseph holding the Christ-child, as well as roundels of St John the Baptist and the th young Christ, who holds an orb. Angels are also included at the top and bottom.
