Postcard - ‘Do not be like the horse or the mule’.
'Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding, but must be controlled by bit and bridle.' Psalm 32:9. From Melchior Mattsperger, Die geistliche Hertzens-Einbildungen, 1699. Images like this one were used as card games in pietistic circles.
There is a brief explanation of the image on the reverse of the card.
