Psalm 100 (Vulg., 099) -- Christ-Logos, as half figure, wearing crossed nimbus, appears in cloud-edged arc of heaven, rayed. He makes gesture of blessing with his right hand and in his left hand holds cross-surmounted globe. Below is Cardinal, with hat hanging around neck, tonsured, kneeling with joined hands raised. Beside him is pope, wearing triple crown tiara, kneeling with joined hands raised. At right is group of bishops, wearing miters, the foremost, kneeling with joined hands raised. The rest with only tops of miters visible. Scene in landscape setting.
Margin is decorated with foliate border, including roses, daisies, cornflowers, thistles, and strawberries, inhabited by fantastic animal and bird.
