Description: A man, representing the true Christian, stands near a vine and beneath a fruitful tree, surrounded by animals, including sheep. He holds a cross in one arm and a book in the other and above him, the Holy Spirit descends as a dove. The Latin superscription reads, "Description of the true Christian man," and the text below, "Speak well: who is worthy of the venerable name of Christian? He who satisfies the force of the name by word and deed.".
