The panel shows the bust of a king wearing a yellow crown with a halo in ruby glass.

There is an outer border of ruby to either side, which may have been added, although it includes medieval pieces. It is probably from the clerestory of the choir at Sosissons Cathedral in Aisne. The original glass has only survived in part.
