The redemption plate is elliptical. The center depicts the Sacrifice of Issac (13199), surrounded by oval medallions with the Zodiac signs (13198) on the rim. 

The redemption plate depicts the Sacrifice of Isaac in its centre. Isaac is lying on his back on the altar. With hands tied he looks at his father, Abraham who has a long beard and a crown holds Isaac by his hair while lifting a sword in his right hand. Abrahams face is turned up towards a cloud in the sky from which an angel appears. The naked angel stops Abraham from slaying his son with his right hand. A ram which stands at the front of the mountain to the right of the scene, is caught by its horns in a bare tree. Two bearded servants wearing turbans stand to the left of Abraham below a foliate tree. One is holding the ass by a rope. Each raises his left hand and looks towards the angel. 

The Zodiac signs are depicted within medallions in a counterclockwise direction, starting with the sign of Lamb in the right upper part of the circle.
