The Story of Job

Marten van Heemskerck   -  
Job’s triumph

Job is sitting on the back of a large turtle, only his loins are covered. He holds in one hand a flag with scales and with his other hand he leads his wife, his three companions, and the devil by rope. In the right background Job sits on the ground, in front of his burning house, with his three companions and his wife.
