Panel 26 - Witnesses to the encounter between Martin and Tetradius
Description:
In one of the neatest of the hypotactic panels, these two figures act like a visual copula, linking together panels 25 and 27, which together form the left and right halves of a single scene. The men gesture towards the other panels and turn as if to discuss them - another nice demonstration of the kind of 'active viewing' expected of us as viewers of the window.
