The masterfully crafted panel consisting of two door panels united in one frame, composed of East Indian Rosewood, maple, walnut, spindle-wood, oak, mahogany, various fruitwoods including pear or cherry, with bog oak possibly used for areas with green shading, depicting with great precision and attention to carved detail a battle, possibly the Battle of Pavia during the Italian Wars (1521-1526), with strategic commanders and a foreshortened knight on horseback in foreground before soldiers on foot and horse, walled fortress to center, and cannoneers amid architecture and tents on a rolling terrain traversed by a river.
