Apostle, Thomas: Incredulity -- Within city gate with closed portals, Apostle Thomas partly kneels with his left hand raised and extends his right hand to finger breast wound of cross-nimbed Christ. He wears mantle, showing His wounds, grasps with His right hand the apostle's right hand, and holds book with one strap in His left hand.
Scene beneath lobed ogee arch, with diapered backgrounds, within decorated frame with foliate terminals at corners.
