Image Title: Fleeing From Sin

Description: A woman holding a skull and encircled by a snake stands in front of a tree, from the top of which a demon appears to grow. To the left, a man has fallen through the ice into a river and several people attempt to rescue him while on the right, a man has caught fire and several try to douse the flames. The Latin superscription reads, "Sin, and the opportunity to flee," and the text below, "Which evils should I flee, the dog more evil than the snake? Sin: and whatever gives opportunity to sin.".
