Above the scarlet socle the two lower sections combine figures and geometric motifs. 

The second section features Our Lady as the throne of Christ, who is acclaimed by the apostles and prophets.

On the well-preserved first level, most of the scenes are for the congregation, while the rest may be seen only by the officiating priest. The scenes include Christ with a cross-shaped halo surrounded by the soldiers who capture him, the denial of Peter, the granting of the keys to Peter and Christ on the cross. 

The top section features two squares forming an octagon, closed by two circles with peacock feathers and a laurel wreath (Christ’s triumph and resurrection).
