Christ: Last Judgment -- Christ, rays as nimbus, partially draped in mantle, is seated on rainbow with feet on globe, showing bleeding wounds. He is flanked by four angels playing trumpets and by Virgin Mary, nimbed and veiled, and by John Baptist, nimbed, both kneeling on clouds (?), with joined hands, looking toward Christ. Below, nude bodies emerge from graves, looking up toward Christ, some with hands joined, one orant, one held by devil. Hell mouth with bodies amid flames is in lower right corner.
In initial D, bust of risen body (?) looking up toward Christ.
