Gift of Dr. Ludwig A. Emge

An equestrian knight rides across this scene, accompanied by his dog. Immediately behind him, Death mounted on a horse displays an hour glass; the Devil in monstrous form to right. A towered city in the background.

A knight in heavy armor carrying a staff rides a thickly set muscular horse. Skeletal death approaches on a drooping horse and a monstrous devil with cloven hooves threatens the knight in a barren landscape. A dog and lizard run under the horse.
