Behind the youth is a bearded man raising a branch in his right hand and emerging from the city gate of Jerusalem. Scene within Gothic architectural frame decorated with cusps of ball terminals, and six French heraldic shields, including Hangest (one) and Count of Grandpr³b (two), in medallions, and heraldic devices, including Hangest.
