There is No Natural Religion, object 7 (Bentley b8, Erdman b8, Keynes b8)

Sector CD
plate Illustration:

A nude, muscular man sits on the ground. His left leg is extended to the right; his right leg is drawn up with his left foot near his groin. Chains extend from each ankle; there seems to be a shackle on at least the right ankle. He faces down, and thus we see the top of his head, with one strand of his long hair drifting to the left. His arms are raised horizontally and bent at the elbow, with his hands clutching his head. This posture, particularly the way he clutches his head, suggests the theme of "despair" in the text above (line 5).
