Scripture Reference:

Description: A man squats on top of a large, eye-covered wheel, holding a banner that reads "Remember your last end. Eccli 7 (Ecclesiasticus 7:40)." Friends surround a man on his deathbed and an individual is thrown into hell by a demon; overhead, Mary is crowned and Christ returns as the dead are raised to meet Him. The Latin superscription reads, "Four last things of humanity," and the text below, "Recall to yourself: that by which I will throw off the yokes that cut into your souls. Death: Judgment: Hell: Celestial kingdom".
