Christ: before Pilate -- With His right hand raised and book in His left hand, Christ, scalloped crossed nimbus, is surrounded by six men. Two with grotesque facial features, including one wearing kerchief, grasp Him. One, hooded, raises hands, and another wears hat. All stand before Pilate, wearing hat, seated with legs crossed on cushioned bench.
Scene with gold decorated background, within decorated frame with foliate terminals at mid-points and corners.
