The Virgin with the Infant Jesus riding on an ass accompanied by shepherds with their sheep and cattle.
In the countryside of hills and trees Mary and the infant Jesus on an ass wind their way down a steep mountain amongst a herd of sheep and cattle. Mary speaks to a man dressed as a shepherd. The procession of animals and people is led by an older man (Joseph) with a staff who appears to be talking to an intelligent cow.
