Description: A woman sits among flames in the mouth of a lion, on the head of which sits a demon holding a banner, encircled by a snake, which bears the word "Eternity." In the background, to the left and to the right, two women are tormented by demons bearing whips. The Latin superscription reads, "Eternity, eternity; how long you are!" and the text below, "How long will eternity last? By chance for a thousand years? Thousands, myriad and thrice myriad, they are nothing.".
