David: communicating with God -- David kneels with joined hands raised beside canopied throne, harp, prie-dieu with open book with pseudo-inscription, and crown. Beside him stands Nathan, wearing hat, pointing with left hand toward God, with rays as nimbus, raising right hand in blessing and holding globe in left hand, in arc of heaven, emanating rays. In backgroud is river with ships and city, and distant hills. Miniature framed by columns.
