glass, h 29.0cm × w 22.8cm More details

This panel depicts a rarely illustrated story from the Bible. In the Old Testament the prophet Ezekiel compares the city of Jerusalem to an infant aban-doned shortly after its birth. When God saw the baby lying in its own blood, he spoke the word ‘Vive!’ (Live!) twice, and thus rescued the foundling and went on to raise it lovingly.
