Curious Temptation Hoodies
This wood engraving illustration comes from the book entitled Quarles' Emblems that was illustrated by Henry Rogers and Chalres Bennett. There is little information available on both artists. A snake is coiled around a large stylized heart and holds an apple in its mouth. Below the picture two separate scrolls bear the inscription Totus mundus in maligno/Mali ligno positus est, which stands for Totus mundus in maligno positus est (The whole world is established inside the Devil).
