In this picture of the Dormition, Saint Peter (?) holds an incense burner over the figure of the Virgin. The picture is unusual in that it seems to show thirteen Apostles. It may be part of an altarpiece.
The small monastic figure at the bottom is the donor. His scroll refers to the Assumption of the Virgin.
