Christ: Miracle of raising Lazarus -- Lazarus, pearled nimbus, wrapped in shroud, sits up in sarcophagus and extends joined hands toward Christ, pearled crossed nimbus, raising right hand in blessing and holding book in left hand. Mary and Martha, both veiled, stand behind Christ, a scroll inscribed LAZARE VENI FORAS from John 11:43, rising above them. Behind Lazarus stand three men in pointed hats.
Scene on tooled gold background within painted frame sprouting gold leaves.
