Scripture Reference:

Description: A man in a boat tries to reach a heavenly city, where angels hold out a crown and on the shore, three figures armed with instruments of torture create wind by blowing into the sails; Noah's ark is visible in the background. The Latin superscription reads, "Enemies make conditions favorable" and the text below, "What do they do, who deceive, agitate and disgrace me? The support your sails by gusts of wind all the way to the impenetrable harbor.".
