Shepherds: Annunciation -- Three shepherds in landscape with stylized tree and six sheep, look toward half-figures of two angels, emerging from arcs of Heaven holding scrolls with pseudo-inscriptions. One shepherd, wearing hat and hood, and purse over left shoulder, stands resting chin on left hand, his right hand holding pedum. The second, wearing hood, raises right hand; and the third sits holding bagpipe.
Margins decorated with foliate ornament on rectilinear bars.
