Psalm 131 (Vulg., 130):
Virgin Mary: Assumption -- Virgin Mary, nimbed, veiled, with joined hands raised, in mandorla of rays of light, is supported by eight angels. Below, twelve apostles kneel, including tonsured Apostle Peter, extending both hands, and Evangelist John with right hand raised and fold of garment in left hand. In background, beyond rocky outcropping, is landscape.
