This double-sided panel painting is one wing of a large altarpiece. During Lent the wings would have been closed, concealing the brightly painted panels and displaying only the monochrome sides. The whereabouts of the other panels are unknown. One side shows John the Baptist in the wilderness, preparing 'the way of the Lord'. He carries a lamb and a flag, symbols of the Resurrection, and a scroll which means 'Behold the Lamb of God'.
