Caption: A giant crowned figure is seen emerging from the landscape clutching a sword and a crosier. The torso and arms of the figure are composed of over three hundred persons. The lower portion is a triptych the center form contains the title on an ornate curtain. The two sides reflect the sword and crosier of the main figure - earthly power on the left and the powers of the church on the right. Each side element reflects the equivalent power - castle to church crown to mitre cannon to excommunication weapons to logic and the battlefield to the religious courts. Etching for the book's Matter Forme & Power of a Common-wealth ecclesiasticall and civill famous frontispiece.
