God: Adoration by Humanity -- God, emanating rays of light, in mandorla, surrounded by angels, appears in heaven amid saints.
Below, humanity, suggested by crowd of figures including monks, bishops, cardinals, popes, the King of France, wearing mantle decorated with fleur-de-lis, adore Christ-Logos. In crowd, bishop (at left), possibly Ambrose of Milan, and pope, (center, unidentified), wearing triple-crowned tiara, are elevated above figures. In background is landscape with hills and castle.
