Full length figure of John the Baptist, naked apart from a red, draped farbic about his hips, seated on a rock with a lamb at his feet. His body is turned away from the viewer. His head is turned back over his shoulder toward the viewer. He holds a staff and scroll, which is tangled amongst the red drapery, which reads 'ECCE AGNUS DEI' or Lamb of God. Tall dark tree to the left, contrasting with a pale, blue and clouded sky.
