The Lord is shown returning in glory, with the Theotokos and John the Baptist standing in supplication. The Apostles are enthroned as the elders from the Book of Revelation.
In the center, Adam and Eve bow in worship before the Cross and the Gospel, and the Archangel Michael stands with symbols of justice and authority. On either side are choirs of Hierarchs (bishops), Prophets, male and female Martyrs, and male and female Monastics.
At the bottom is the Narrow Gate and all those who are alive on earth at the Second Coming. How will they be judged? On the left side are the Penitent Thief, the Theotokos, and Father Abraham in Paradise.
