Christ is shown in half-length. His right hand is raised in a gesture signifying oration (or teaching). In his left hand he holds an open book with an inscription that is faded, but which is probably from the Gospel of Matthew: 'Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn' (11:28-30).
