A cartoon for the tapestry of Christ's Charge to Peter for the Sistine Chapel.

Christ is standing on the left, pointing behind himself to a flock of sheep and in front to the keys held by Peter, who is kneeling. The other disciples stand in a group at the centre and on the right. The scene is set in a landscape.
