This painted bust portrait is reassembled from fragmented vertical strips. It shows a man rendered realistically on a partially gilded background. He has brown short hair, large brown eyes, a slightly sloping nose, dark stubble, and small but full lips. In his hair is gilded decoration in the form of eight-pointed star bursts. Resting diagonally across a white garment on his chest from proper right to left is a red band with golden studs. The central painting fragments have the most complete application of paint, and the ones further out towards the end of the board have sketchier areas.
