Right wing of a diptych, ivory, carved in relief. Under a triple cusped arch with crocketed gables and two trefoils cut between them, the figure of Christ is in the centre.

On the left kneels a bearded figure wearing a Jew's hat, who is also mocking Christ, and in his left hand he holds a spear. Behind him stands the Virgin grief-stricken.
