A stylised image of Christ depicted as a shepherd, standing on the banks of a river with his flock of sheep. Three sheep to the left lean forward to drink from the river, a single sheep to the right of Christ gazes up at him. Christ stands carrying two lambs in his arms, a halo radiating brightly about his head. He is framed by oak leaves around the edges of the picture. A meandering river can be seen between heavy oak trees in the background to the left.
