This is Page 16 of the bound volume of The Deer’s Cry at the Manx Museum.

The belt or wrist band possibility mentioned for pages 13,14 and 15 remains for Page 16 and the colours, once again, seem to be that of the earth, grass and trees, and may be showing that the Apostles and Confessors are of the earth whilst pages 13 and 14 are not of the natural world – Page 13 being Angels and Archangels and Page 14 being about the Resurrection.

The sentences above are subjective and personal thoughts. No doubt Knox was portraying many symbols and meanings in this page but they are beyond me at present.
