About this work

Description

Christ (marked "Medicus, Matth. 12") holds a glass heart containing a boar, a frog and another object, perhaps a bottle, all representing sins. The water emanating from his side into the sick woman's cup is labelled "Livore eius sanati sumus. Esai 53." A globe bearing a cross hovers next to the heart, marked "Fiat. Portans oia verbo virtutis suæ. Hebr. 1." A woman beneath it (marked "Matth. 0. Fides tua te salua fecit") holds a small crucifix and holds the sick woman's wrist
