Representation of the saint as a young woman, standing, directing her body to her right and wearing a white robe and a dark blue cloak with rich ornaments and a delicate crown on her head. The saint carries the allusive attributes to her martyrdom. In his left hand she holds a palm, and her right hand is resting on his chest. On the left, on the floor, a fragment of the cogwheel and the sword. In the background, on the left, a scene is reproduced: soldiers running after the breaking of the wheel.
