EMBLEMA XVI.

Libera ceu volucris, caveae mox carcere clausa,
Libera confracto carcere rursus abit:
Liber homo natus, mortis dein clausus in antro,
Rursus abit Christo liber ad astra duce.[1]

Just as a free bird, quickly enclosed within the prison of a cage, goes free again with the prison broken, so man is born free, then enclosed within the cave of death, again goes free with Christ as His leader to the stars.

Notes:

1. áSee images of the freedom Christ brings in John 8:32 or Romans 8:2.
