In three medallions we see devils attack and terrorisme a farm. Dead cattle lie in front of the house. An elegantly dressed woman raises her hands to the heavens and takes flight, while a man kneels to pray. One devil takes over the farmer's work and demons pull a man from the house and flog him. Finally, in the fourth medallion, Christ brings salvation.
