Jesus is depicted in the centre of the image in a blue robe with a red cloak. He points at the adultress with his right hand and holds her right hand in his left. She wears a yellow dress and has lowered her eyes. A soldier stands in the foreground holding a stone in his hand. More men stand in the background, most of them facing towards Jesus.
