Description: Four people kneel in front of a cross, which bears a flail and crown of thorns; at its base is an altar where an open book displays Christ wearing a crown of thorns on one page and the wounds of his crucifixion on the other. The Latin superscription reads, "The suffering Christ, the perfect exemplar of patience" and the text below, "Not to be subdued by an adversary, through what summary might I learn? Read this book, of the flail, cross, blood of Christ.".
