Psalm 075 (Vulg., 074) -- Man, wearing hat, extends hands toward man, wearing hat, kneeling with joined hands raised. Behind him is group of men, all wearing hats, the foremost of which has joined hands raised. Above is cloud-edged arc of heaven, rayed, within which is Christ-Logos, cross-nimbed, raising right hand in gesture of blessing and holding cross-surmounted globe in left hand. Scene in landscape setting.
Margin is decorated with foliate border, including daisies and strawberries, inhabited by bird and by hybrid man, wearing hood, with snail on his back.
