Image Title: Pharisees Ask for a Sign

Scripture Reference:

Description: The scribes and Pharisees ask Jesus for a sign (foreground), as in the background right an unclean spirit returns with seven other spirits, and a beastly head devours a man and in the background center people come to kneel before a king. Includes the monogram of the woodcutter, Christoffel van Sichem II (1577-1658) in the bottom right border near the Pharisees; his son, Christoffel van Sichem III (1618-1659), may have collaborated with him on these images .
