The representation shows the moment after Jesus announced his betrayal by one of the disciples (John 13, 21-30). The mood is agitated. On the far left an apostle wrings his hands in horror, while on the right at the edge of the table an apostle holds his head in his hands, dejected. John, the beloved disciple of Jesus, sits dressed in green to the left. Simon Peter, recognisable by his characteristic type of head, sits to the right of Jesus. Judas Iscariot in a yellow robe sits facing Jesus as a figure from behind. The vivid, moving figures are sculpted in an expressive and lively way. The sculptor cannot be identified, but was likely a local talented master.
