Description:

Colored print depicting a male from infancy to old age in decade spans. The figures are depicted on ascending steps to 50 and then they descend with 100 being the lowest to the right. Verses beneath each figure associate a depicted animal with that stage of life. In the lower center is a small vignette of three men drinking at a table while a young man and women walk away. The devil gestures between the two groups.
