Christ: Entry into Jerusalem -- Apostle Peter, tonsured, and Evangelist John lead crowd of people past tree. They follow Christ, rayed cross as nimbus, raising right hand in blessing, seated astride ass beside foal, both treading on garments spread by two male figures. Bearded man, facing Christ, stands behind first male figure. Behind him, crowd emerges from city gates of Jerusalem, including one male figure holding object on top of head. In background is landscape, including mounted figure and standing figure on road leading toward hill surmounted by building.
