At the top appears the monstrance, symbol of the Eucharist, accompanied by little angels and cherubs. On the left we see a running woman who, after having tried in vain to tempt the saint, is chased away by him with a burning wood visible on the ground in the foreground. it is a very faithful and very well executed copy from the work of Pacecco de Rose.
