Description

A view of a tomb, which is covered by a canopy. The tomb is outside. The effigy is in repose, while angels are positioned on both sides of the effigy's head. There are three pointed niches near the roofline. The niches contain sculptures. The central niche appears to be a scene of Jesus ascending into heaven.
