Scripture Reference:

Description: After Abraham’s three visitors inform him of God’s plan to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, he pleads with them to spare the cities if ten righteous people can be found. In the background, two angels lead Lot and his family out of Sodom, as his wife is turned into a pillar of salt for looking back toward the cities. The engraver’s monogram (AB ?), along with an engraver’s knife, is located at the lower left corner of the woodcut.
