The Holy Family in a stable.
In the entry way of a rustic stone and wood building Joseph helps Mary dismount using a wooden stool. The donkey (ass) is held by a soldier bearing weapons. Mary holds the baby. Above their heads a woman, her infant and the family cat looks on. A bag of carpentry tools lies nearby. Through the arch a shepherd guards his clock in a landscape of trees and hills.
