The Virgin Mary (identified by the inscription embossed on her gold halo)is seated wearing a blue cloak & red dress and dandling the Christ Shild on her knee, both are looking to the viewer's left. Behind a wall 2 winged angels pull away the green curtains from in front of a red & gold brocaded cloth of honour set against a stamped & decorated gold background. On the right stands a bearded middle-aged Joseph dressed according to 16th-century fashion in a blue hood (the same hue as the Virgin's cloak), a green tunic, red cloak and pointed ankle-boots.
