Bringeth forth Death

Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin; and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
—James I. 15.

Description

Book the First. Emblem II. Heads of various species of animals stick out from a globe. A cat, a pig, a peacock, a dog or a wolf are easy to recognize, whereas the head in the center is only vaguely human. A scroll in the decoration bears the motto Sic malum crevit unicum in omne malum.

For this series of illustrations, the main figurative artwork was carried out by Charles Henry Bennett and the ornamental part by William Harry Rogers.
