Christ: Ascension -- Only lower part of Christ is visible in almond-shaped mandorla supported by two nimbed angels, emerging from clouds. Below are Virgin Mary, veiled, raising her left hand and holding book in her draped right hand, and tonsured Apostle Peter holding book. Both are flanked by eleven apostles; some hold books. All are nimbed.
