Christ: Last Judgment -- Christ, with crossed nimbus, partially draped in mantle, showing wounds in hands, feet, and sides, with swords flanking and pointing to His neck, is seated on rainbow arc with globe at his feet. On ground below kneel Virgin Mary, nimbed, veiled, and Evangelist John, nimbed, both with joined hands raised. Between them, nude souls, some with joined hands raised, emerge from graves. Patterned background and arc of heaven above. Margins with floreate ornament.
