Description: An armored soldier brandishes a sword, while to the left a man makes the sign of the cross and to the right, a man prays against a storm, from which lightning, a demon and a dragon emerge. The Latin superscription reads, "Two guards, most present in adversity," and the text below, "A critical wordless defense, that evil be driven out. A cross, formed with the hand: the fiery and spear-like weapon of prayer.".
