Behind Christ outside the archway on left, stand two nude male and female figures (Adam, with long beard, and Eve). A lizard-like beast clings to the arch on right, its face partially obscured and holding a spear aimed down. As Christ reaches down, he’s balanced by a gold staff in left hand with cross-shaped finial and waving flag. A wound in Christ’s right hand is evident. The arch door fell to lower left, a dragon-like beast hisses behind it. Flames and two human faces look up at Christ in pleading gestures from the bottom.
