Seated on a she-asses' foal and in the company of his disciples, Jesus arrives at the gates of Jerusalem, where a priest awaits him. The tree in the background is a palm tree.

The first two disciples are Peter and Paul. The presence of Paul is odd, as he isn't mentioned in the Bible until after Jesus' death.
