The composition illustrates the 148th Psalm of David. The diversity and harmony of the worldly beauty is depicted here.  Its main theme is the world praising the Creator. In the upper part is the firmament, in the center is the figure of Christ seated on a throne and surrounded by Angels.  Below are the Earth and its inhabitants. To the left and right are righteous kings, monks, young and old men and infants. In the center are mountains and all hills  with trees and grass amongst which are flittering birds and walking animals.
