At center, a man lies prone on a bed surrounded by flames. From under the bed, creatures with pointed ears and scaly skin grab up at his feet and legs while another holds chains up to him. Floating directly above and parallel, is a figure with a flowing beard, pointed hair and a cloven hoof. As a snake spirals around him, the figure points with his left hand to stone tablets looming behind him. With his right he reaches around the head of the prone man and points down to the flames. The margins above and below the image show text from the biblical Book of Job, decorated with smoke and flames.
