Christ: bearing Cross -- Virgin Mary, veiled, and Evangelist John, both with pearled nimbi, support cross borne by Christ, cross-nimbed, on His right shoulder. He wears long loin cloth and is covered with sores. With rope around His waist, He is led by executioner, wearing kerchief, and raising hammer in his left hand. Four men surround Christ; one pushes Him, and another grimaces.
Scene with gold punched diapered background, within decorated frame with foliate terminals at corners.
