In the four extreme corners scenes from the O.T. and N.T. that refer to the dressing of the nudes: Adam and Eve are driven out of Paradise and given clothing from God the Father; Joseph gives new clothes to his brothers, Tobit gives alms to the poor; Jonathan gives his cloak, his robe and his bow and arrow to David as a sign of covenant.
