From a portfolio of 27 prints.

The old peasant woman on pilgrimage, a sack on her back and carrying a walking stick, travels along a path that connects at the far right with an enormous spider's web. The spider, his head crowned with the black headdress of a high-level member of the Orthodox clergy, lays in wait. As bait, he dangles religious icons as she approaches the web. Icons like these were purchased by the religious faithful at various pilgrimage sites dedicated to saints and miracles of the Church.
