This panel features another complex story, Joseph and his brothers. Sold by his jealous older brothers into slavery, Joseph eventually becomes governor of Egypt. When famine drives his brothers to Egypt to buy grain, he slowly reveals his identity, interweaving it with proof of his brothers' guilt. At the end he embraces his shocked and devastated brothers. A large circular granay dominates the panel.
