That low-relief is reproduced from a matrix inspired by “Saint Anthony’s Temptation” painted by David II “the Younger” Téniers.
Saint Anthony the Great, a hermit living in the Egyptian desert, is being tempted by the Devil symbolized by visions of terrestrial sensual pleasures.
Nowadays the original painting is exhibited in the Louvre in Paris.
