Knight Death and the Devil by Albrecht Durer
Description: This represents an allegory on Christian salvation. Unflustered neither by Death who is standing in front of him with his hour-glass nor by the Devil behind him, an armored knight is riding along a narrow defile, accompanied by his loyal hound. This represents the steady route of the faithful, through all of life's injustices, to God who is symbolized by the castle in the background. The dog symbolizes faith (and possibly loyalty), and the lizard religious zeal.
