The picture shows a medieval market town. On the marketplace you can see traveling merchangs with their tents and market stalls selling their goods like cloths. Jugglers are performing and some people are drinking in a tent. You can further see representatives of the guilds in the town: a tailor, negotiating with a noble lady wearing a hennin. On the left side you can see the stall of a moneychanger or money-lender.
