A light-skinned man with a tonsured haircut is pictured from the hips up on a dark brown background. He has dark eyes and hollow cheeks. He wears a white shirt with a brown hooded cloak over it. In his left arm he cradles the edge of his cloak and a small black book. His right arm is also bent, and his right index finger is extended. A large meat cleaver is lodged horizontally in the back of the man’s head. A dagger is stuck into the left side of his chest. A thin golden halo is visible around his head.
