Abstract:
"Four realistic figures stand in niches divided by slender pillars. Below each is the title, supported on an emblematic carving; above are his words. [1] 'The King'; he stands arrogantly, wearing crown and robes and holding sceptre and orb. Above: 'I reign over all'. [2] 'The Bishop', in robes and mitre, holding a crosier, his fingers together, is gross and sanctimonious. Above: 'I pray for all'. [3] 'The Soldier', an officer, wearing cocked hat and gorget, draws his sword. Above: 'I fight for all'. [4] 'Farmer Bull', wearing a smock, elderly and careworn, though sturdy, holds out a bag of 'Hard Earnings'; in his left hand are his hat and pitchfork; while behind him is his dog, barking angrily. Above: 'But I pay for All'."--British Museum online catalogue.
