1) Christ: Miracle of raising Lazarus -- Apostle, holding book in draped left hand, and Apostle Peter, tonsured, both stand behind Christ, cross-nimbed, with book in draped left hand. He raises right hand in blessing toward Lazarus, in brown shroud, seated in sarcophagus, in front of group of standing men. One, with right hand raised, grasps with left hand Lazarus' right hand, and another, with his nostrils covered, places his hands on Lazarus' shoulders.
2) Christ: Entry into Jerusalem -- Three nimbed apostles, including tonsured Peter, follow Christ, cross-nimbed, raising right hand in blessing and holding reins with left hand, mounted on ass treading on garment spread by youth. Two men, wearing hats, hold palms and stand at city gate of Jerusalem, above which are six men, one grasping branch of tree, and another bearded, all behind crenellated wall.
