Dressed in magnificent gowns the three kings present their gifts to the newborn child. Mary has the child on her lap. She is sitting on a large, red bed - a contrast with the rather humble stable. From the background two shepherds look on, as does Joseph in the foreground.

The panel has a background with leaf gold, stamped in a leaf pattern. It is thought to be made in the northern Netherlands.
