Verso: the Christ Child as ‘Geist’ holding the cross, riding the Holy Lamb, from whom emanate ‘Wort’ as the Christ Child holding the Cross with the serpent, and ‘Person’ as probably the Man of Sorrows, a snake around his neck, holding a tree with skulls for fruit; each of these form the crests of their respective arms, whose shields are held by an angel, above whose head is the Moon.
