Etching. 185 x 345mm (7¼ x 13½"). Narrow margins, laid on card.
An allegory of the choices of life: children stream from between the legs of a woman in the foreground to pass through an arch to live their lives, with the middle ground filled with people partying and brawling. On the left others are being tortured in a cave, a gallows above; on the right is a burning church. Far fewer people pass a narrower arch and join a steep path up to Heaven. Published in 'Epicteti Enchiridium', this is an illustration of Matthew 7:13: ''Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it''.
