In front of the sepulchre is the monogram P crossed with an X, with a palm and lily branches. Festoons are hanging from heads and the entablature. The entablature of the retable is supported by two groups of columns and pillars. Above is a circular pediment. Inside is a frame, with two cherubim on top. Two vases with flowers stand upon the mense, beside the retable. The pillars and the arch of the backwall are drawn, the latter decorated with a fret band. Below the scale.
