Iconography: A kneeling figure looks up to Christ and points at a man who draws water issuing from the foot of the crucifix. You shall draw the waters with joy from the saviour’s fountains Christ looks out from heaven towards a lamb and crucifix. The crucifix and lamb are not mentioned in the text, but are an interpretation of the word saviour. Salvation comes through Christ's sacrifice
