Sacrifice of Isaac
God appears in a heavenly porthole and commands Abraham, who holds a knife in one hand and Isaac’s hair in the other, to stop the sacrifice of his son. God points at a lamb, standing behind Abraham to be sacrificed instead of Isaac. Isaac portrayed as a small child, sits bent on the altar with his hands bound and blindfolded.
