The accent is put on the religious scene, whose proportions are still mediaeval: Christ occupies an extremely large area - almost two thirds - because he is the living God. The town, meant to evoke the celestial Jerusalem, and the skies visible in the distance are blue-tinted on account of the aerial perspective characteristic of the Flemish. Behind the group there is a very large rock and several highly stylised trees.
