plate Illustration:

A male, nude from the waist up, sits on a large stone or mound of earth and points with both arms to the right. The index fingers of both hands are extended, thereby emphasizing the pointing gesture. His lower legs are crossed and at least his left leg is covered with drapery. His right foot is clearly defined and prominent. He looks out at the viewer; his hair appears to be short and curly. The background is filled with what appear to be tree trunks and leaves. Given the text below the design, the figure is very probably John the Baptist.

Component (Sector E)

Keywords: male, nude, John the Baptist, drapery, sitting, pointing, legs crossed, fingers, right foot, curly hair, knees, facing forward, arms raised horizontally, young

A youthful male, nude from the waist up, sits on a large stone or mound of earth and points with both arms to the right. The index fingers of both hands are extended, thereby emphasizing the pointing gesture. His lower legs are crossed; the knees are prominent. At least his left leg is covered with drapery. His right foot is clearly defined and prominent. He looks out at the viewer; his hair appears to be short and curly. Given the text beneath, quoted from all four Gospels, the figure is very probably John the Baptist.
