Christ, rays as crossed nimbus, raising right hand in blessing, looking toward Lazarus, stands amid two apostles, nimbed, and Mary and Martha, one veiled with wimple, the other wearing contemporary headdress. Two men, one wearing hat, each raising draped hand to face, stand at right.
Scene in city, with church in background and other buildings in distance.
Margins decorated with floreate ornament including larkspur (?), rose, forget-me-not (?), viola, bellflower (?), and strawberry and inhabited by flies.
