Image Title: Driven by Sin

Description: A man sits in a carriage, which is pulled by a variety of animals and controlled by a demon with a whip, who drives it into the mouth of hell; scenes of murder, storm, shipwreck, and fire are visible in the background. The Latin superscription reads, "The most destructive sin to mankind," and the text below, "Say, is there anything more harmful to man than calamity? Sin; the stiff whip, by which it drives him.".
