In the Upper Room, represented here by architectural elements that support a curtained arch, Christ prepares to wash the feet of Peter, who duly raises his leg in order to put his foot into a bowl. On the left, an Apostle holds the cloth for Christ to dry him. This mural fragment comes from the apse of the church of Sant Esteve (Andorra la Vella).
