Christ: Last Judgment -- Christ, with rays as nimbus, wearing partly draped mantle, showing wounds, raises right hand in blessing, extends left hand, and sits on arc, feet on tripartite globe. He is flanked above by two angels holding long, curved trumpets and flanked below by Virgin Mary, and Evangelist John, both with rays as nimbus, kneeling with joined hands. Two women, two men, and two tonsured clerics, emerge from ground.
Scene takes place before pattered background, within decorated frame.
