Heaven -- God, rays as nimbus, seated on draped throne, makes gesture of blessing with his right hand and in his left hand holds cross-surmounted globe. Below him, in clouds are angels and groups of saints, nimbed (most with only tops of nimbi visible). Of saints, one is man with joined hands raised, two are men with left hands raised, and one is woman, possibly Virgin Mary, with joined hands raised.
Margin is decorated with foliate border, including roses, daisies, and thistles, inhabited by fantastic animal.
