Christ: Flight into Egypt -- Virgin Mary, nimbed, holding swaddled Christ Child, with crossed nimbus, sits sideways on ass led by Joseph the Carpenter, nimbed, with rod held over left shoulder, turning to look toward Virgin Mary. Rays descend from above toward Virgin Mary. In background is distant landscape.
Amid foliate ornament in margins are thrush with extended wings; and hybrid man, wearing hood, playing rebec.
