Scripture Reference:

Description: In the foreground James writes his epistle, while looking into a mirror, which reminds the reader that he must not read the word and forget it, as one forgets his own reflection when looking in a mirror. In the background an image of the sea being driven by the wind, representing doubt and lack of faith, and a wilting flower appears behind him.
