Image Title: Cries for Vengeance

Description: Four disembodied heads, each sitting on a cloud, call out for vengeance to God, who sits at the top of the image. The Latin superscription reads, "Four sins proclaimed to heaven," and the text below, "What are the sins about which the cry reaches high Olympus? Swiftly they demand the vengeful wrath of the divine.".
