Five male saints are all nimbed. One is tonsured, one is wearing a bishop's miter and vestments and carrying a three-barred processional cross(?), and another is holding a sword.
The margins are decorated with foliate and floreate ornament, including a strawberry. In the lower margin is the heraldic shield of Pierre de Bosredont (quarterly, vair and gules) above a rabbit. Text, Mass of the Virgin.
