Psalm 097 (Vulg., 096):
David: Fetching of Ark -- Two oxen, prodded with stick held by Ahio, tonsured, wearing white habit, pull cart with Ark of Covenant, decorated with figural reliefs, along road. Beyond cart, Uzzah lies dead on ground, left arm extended. Behind him, crowd of figures, lead by David, crowned, wearing ermine collar, gathers. In background is landscape, including castle built on lake, and hill with road leading up to another castle.
