This hand-coloured full-page image is outlined in a thick black rectangular border, in portrait orientation. It depicts a knight’s head and torso in three-quarter profile, facing left. He wears chain mail with patches of his orange tunic visible beneath. He wears a dome-shaped helmet divided into segments; each segment is decorated with a yellow sun and blue clouds. Tucked into the back of the helmet, a purple favour or ribbon flies out behind the knight. In his right hand, the knight holds a raised sword, blade up; it is near and parallel to the left side of the frame. Behind him is green grass, an army atop horses holding raised spears, blue mountains, and a greu sky. The artist’s monogram is on the knight’s left shoulder, on the right side of the frame.
