Jeremiah's prophesies abound in objects and animals as metaphors. They enable artists to depict concise images of single objects in conveying moral and social messages. In a stained glass window dedicated to prophet Jeremiah, the artist includes a depiction of a seething pot, which stands for the evil brought by God upon the People of Israel: "And the word of the LORD came unto me the second time, saying, What seest thou? And I said, I see a seething pot; and the face thereof is toward the north. (Jeremiah 1, 13). Clay in the hands of a potter, who shapes it on a wheel serves in conveying the way God treats the Israelites: "O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel" (Jeremiah, 18, 6). A grapevine stands for "O vine of Sibmah, I will weep for thee with the weeping of Jazer: thy plants are gone over the sea, they reach even to the sea of Jazer: the spoiler is fallen upon thy summer fruits and upon thy vintage" (Jeremiah, 48, 32-33).
