This image is of the Ten Commandments that God gave Moses on tablets of stone.  They can be found in Exodus 20: 3-17:

     You shall have no other gods before me.
     You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or on the waters below.  You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sins of their parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
     You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.
     Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.  Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God.  On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns.  For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day.  Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
     Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.
You shall not murder.
     You shall not commit adultery.
You shall not steal.
You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
You shall not covet your neighbor’s house.  You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, or his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

In the Bible, Jesus is often referred to as the “Lamb of God”.  The banner this lamb is holding states:  “Ecce Agnes Dei”, which is Latin for “Glory to God in the Highest”.   Below the Lamb are seven seals, which are referred to in Revelation 5 and 6.  The Bible verse that most relates to this picture is Revelation 5:1:

Then I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals.
