A light-skinned man is nailed to a cross. Blood drips from these wounds and a gash at his right ribs. On his head is a crown of thorns. Behind his head is a circular halo with a red cross in the middle. On top of the cross is a sign reading “INRI.” Above this is a miniature green tree with a bird on top, its beak puncturing its own chest. Below the man on the cross are three figures, a standing woman, a standing man, and a kneeling man with a tonsured haircut. Below the cross is a human skull.
