Christ: Entry into Jerusalem -- Five apostles, four nimbed, two with palm branches, all follow behind Christ, cross-nimbed, holding palm branch in His left hand.
With His right hand raised in blessing, He is seated astride draped ass approaching city gate of Jerusalem in which are five men, four with branches, and one with sickle about to cut palm branch.
Before the city gate, one of two men holds branches, and the other spreads garment on ground.
