The suffering of Job

Artist name: Unknown artist

At the center, Job lies stricken. Above him Satan, his arms stretching from Job’s head to feet, looks triumphantly heavenward . By Job’s head stand his three companions.  At his feet, Job’s wife (hands broken) bends toward him.  Above, God looks on, escorted by angels.
