The head emerges from a rocky outcropping, infested with little figures who swarm over it; a diabolical mass is being conducted inside the gaping mouth, and on the pate sits a figure of the pope enthroned beneath a canopy with indulgences pinned up on the staves; various rituals and processions take place and are labelled with letters; in the foreground Protestant iconoclasts are clearing up bits of altarpieces, religious sculptures, sundry vanities and other church paraphernalia and tipping them into a fire.
From here.
