At the lower part, Jesse is lying down, holding in his right hand a branch of the tree from his body; each branch of this tree bears the great biblical ancestors of the genealogy of Christ in a bust emerging from a corolla and adopting animated attitudes; among the kings, we recognize David playing the harp; they all hold a banner on which were written their names.
