Saint Eustace kneels reverently in front of a rockface and looks up at the mighty stag who stands above him close to the precipice. A cross springs from his forehead between the sweeping antlers. The hunter carries an array of hunting equipment. A ballock and a hunting sword bearing the initials 'AD' on the pommel hang from a shoulder belt. A piece of armour flashes beneath the red robe. The horse, which is tied to a tree, looks into the far distance and appears to be unaffected by the miracle. With the exception of the hunting dog, who stands behind the kneeling figure of Eustace and - baring his teeth - appears to have got the scent of the stag, the remaining dogs do not perceive the mystical apparition.
