There is No Natural Religion, object 5 (Bentley a5, Erdman a5, Keynes a5)

Sector E
plate Illustration:

A woman, with long or medium-length hair and wearing a long gown, kneels on the ground. She looks down and to the right at a young child she holds around with waist with her extended right arm and hand (left arm not pictured). The child, also kneeling and facing right, is probably male; there are no clear indications of clothing. He extends his arms horizontally toward a small bird near the right margin. These motifs may relate to the theme of "desires" (E2) first raised textually on plate a8. The background, right of the woman and above the child, is filled with a clump of trees. A large, leafless tree grows up the left margin and spreads a branch between the heading number ("II") and the first line of text.
