Trinity -- Within architectural setting, beneath poly-lobed arch, dove of Holy Ghost, cross-nimbed, emerges from cloud and is flanked by Christ, cross-nimbed and beardless, right hand raised, holding book in left hand, and by God, cross-nimbed, right hand raised, holding book in left hand on left knee. Both are seated on cushioned bench, pierced with quatrefoil and circles; each with one foot on cloud.
