Saints Genevieve and Apollonia are shown standing against a black background beneath a golden garland of fruit. Genevieve is wearing a black and gold dress with the letters GSE on her chest and holds a long burning candle in her hands. Apollonia is dressed in red and holds a pair of tongs as a symbol of her martyrdom.
The panel is a copy of the external right wing panel from the St Catharine Altarpiece by Lucas Cranach, now in the National Gallery London.
