This fine Nottingham alabaster panel shows the Ascension of Jesus Christ to Heaven. Only the bottom of the Saviour's drapes and his feet are represented, the rest of his body has entered Heaven, which is demarcated by a cloud of triangular forms. Below, the Virgin Mary kneels in prayer, whilst, opposite her, the beardless St. John the Evangelist points upwards with his right hand and holds a palm in his left hand. Further Saints fill the remaining portions of the scene, including St. Jude, who kneels behind St. John and holds his emblem, the boat.

The present relief follows essentially the same composition as another in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (inv. no. A144-1946). As in the present alabaster, the ground is painted green and is adorned with a 'daisy pattern', a typical colour scheme for Nottingham alabasters. The present panel is very well preserved, and retains much of its original polychromy.
