This is a multi-figure composition, in the right part of which there is the figure of the Holy Apostle Paul in red clothes; the apostle Barnabas dressed in blue clothes is behind him. In the foreground there is a pagan altar in the form of a low column, near which there is a figure of a man raising an ax over the bull's head. To his right, there is a figure of a man holding an animal by the neck. The image of a crowd worshiping the apostles is on the left. The landscape with elements of ancient columns with the figure of the god Mars depicted on them serves as a background of the painting.
