A depiction of the Nativity of Christ showing the newborn Child upon the ground, in the centre-foreground, supported by bundles of hay placed under His head with the kneeling figure of the Virgin in adoration before him. Behind the Virgin, to the right, are the kneeling figures of a shepherd and a nun, Saint Bridget. To the right is an unusual stone formation and rocky outcrop beyond. To the left of the Child is the elderly seated figure of Joseph with a staff in his hand; standing behind him, with hands clasped in worship, is a young shepherd in ragged garments.
