The altarpiece comprises of two oil paintings on panel of the Resurrection of Christ beneath a tondo of God the Father, with the Holy Spirit in the heavens. The paintings are framed by bold columns within a baroque faced extensively marbled in the trompe-l'œil manner.
Although cleaned, the small altarpiece remains in outstandingly original condition with very little restoration to the marbling.
