On an altar an elderly man in ornate gold robes stands, cradling an infant in his arms. Beside him stand a woman in blue and green robes and a bearded man in a brown cloak. At lower right, a young woman kneels, holding a small cage with two doves in it. In the foreground at left a small tray holds burning coals that give off wispy smoke. A white cloud rises above the scene, from which appear the head and outstretched hands of a robed man with a white beard. He looks down as a gold halo shines around his head and a white dove flaps its wings in front of him.
