St Nicholas is shown in half-length, wearing the classical vestments of a bishop. His right hand is raised in an ancient gesture signifying oration (or teaching), while he is holding an open gospel book in his left hand. His eyes gaze directly at the viewer. Two roundels - containing Christ in the left (blessing Nicholas) and the Mother of God in the right (holding a veil) - surround Nicholas on either side.
