Scene depicting the Adoration of the Infant Christ, within arched canvas, taken from the painting by Perugino. The baby Jesus lies on the ground in the centre of the picture with Mary to the right and Joseph to the left, both kneeling before the child with their arms folded and crossed in prayer. In the background to the centre and left the three shepherds kneel in similar attitude. There is a heavy wooden stable frame above, a cow and donkey in a pen in the background to the right and hills extend in the distance to the left.
