Death of Man

"You sure this is the way it works?"
"But being in honor, he understands it not, neither knew his excellency, but willingly subjected himself to sin and consequently to death and the curse, giving ear to the words of the devil ... he has lost all his excellent gifts which he received from God."  - Article 14, Belgic Confession

Valour and Cowardice can be seen at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.  Here Valour crushes Cowardice.  The plaster sculpture is the work of Alfred Stevens (1817-75).  This is a full size model for one of the groups on the bronze monument of the duke of Wellington in St Paul's Cathedral.
