JOHN the BAPTIST

This is an ink drawing on calfskin vellum.

There hath not risen among them that are born of women a greater than John the Baptist. Here I drew the Forerunner of Jesus Christ, dressed in camel skins, indicating an emblem of the Lamb of God. The words Ecce Agnus Dei appear in his halo. The locusts in the border decoration refer to the food he ate in the wilderness.
