The central light depicts the resurrected Christ with gonfalon over cowering soldiers. with saints and apostles around and below Christ seated in majesty. In the left-hand light three warrior angels fight a two-headed dragon outside a city, above a depiction of the disciples receiving the Holy Sprit at Pentecost. In the left-hand light the lamb of God stands in front of a walled city, with four rivers proceeding from the ground below; beneath, an angel greets the three women at the empty tomb. Roundels above the shorter left and right-hand lights lights depicting a ship with a red cross and the phoenix rising from the flames.
