About this work
Bible. O.T. 1 Samuel 17. The letters 'Re' on the print refer to 'Regum', the Latin name of the book. Goliath's elaborate armour is decorated with demonic forms and visages. At its centre is a figure stretched out in cruciform position. The handle of his sword is fashioned like an eagle's head, with a ring through its beak
Nimquid canis ego sum ut baculo ad me venias. Ego inquit David hodie auferam caput tuum a te. 1. Re. 17
