A light skinned man hangs on a tall wooden cross. Blood flows from wounds in his hands, chest, and feet. Four figures, two men and two women, stand and kneel around the base of the cross. All have halos around their heads. Below the cross is a human skull. On either side of the cross are orange-and-blue shapes. The paint is partially rubbed away, but they seem to be images of angels and clouds. Another angel with red wings is suspended above the cross holding a scroll and a bloody robe.
