All Religions are One, object 5 (Bentley 5, Erdman 5, Keynes 5)

Sector AB
plate Illustration:

A figure, probably male and nude, sits on the ground. He props up his torso with his left arm; his face is turned upwards. His left leg is extended, his right bent at the knee. Immediately behind him is another figure, also probably nude. Their proximity and posture recall portrayals of the birth of Eve from Adam's side (hence, the more distant figure is probably female). She too raises her face as though looking skyward; her hands are together as if in prayer. The figures are surrounded by branches and perhaps large leaves extending from the tree (a palm?) in the design below the text.

The lower trunk of the tree on the left is surrounded by a spiraling vine.
