Lettering note

The sacred tetragrammaton, "Yahweh", is at the centre of the two circles. On the left the Latin means "God made them tunics of skin" and on the right, "Adam, where are you?". The bottom line reads: "filled with fear at the voice of the irate father, they flee, each recognising their guilt"
