At the cener of this panel, there is a portrait bust of a man painted over another image of a figure. The man stares directly out at the viewer; he has short brown hair and wears a blue shirt. Only the top of the forehead and a little of the clothing at the bottom are visible of the figure beneath. The panel is rough, covered with a thin layer for grey paint, and covered in nails and nail holes.
