The woman is seated on the left, wearing a purple garment and a dome-shaped golden crown. She raises her right arm above her head, holding yellow fruit. On the right, only the man’s lower legs and feet remain because there’s a circular piece missing from the center. He wears high-laced buskins and a pleated garment. Two winged figures complete the composition: one stands at the man’s feet and the second floats above the couple on the right, holding one edge of the canopy. The scene is framed by a braided border and a pattern of birds alternating with flowering plants.
