Saint Gilles is represented standing, holding the Holy Book in his left hand and stroking a doe with his right hand. He is dressed in his Benedictine clothes. Its long, hooded flow falls in broken folds to its feet.
The animal standing next to the Saint echoes his legend: during a hunting party the king of the Visigoths, Wamba, pursued a doe which ran to take refuge in a cave. Saint Gilles, who lived there as a hermit feeding on the animal's milk, was accidentally injured. To be forgiven, the king had the abbey of Saint-Gilles-du-Gard built, which became a stage of pilgrimage, both on the road to Rome and on that of Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle.
