The tree at the top of the print are Joshua Ward, perhaps the most famous quack of his time; Sara Mapp, a well-known bonesetter; and John Taylor the occulist. The bewigged physicians sniff the pomander on their canes, but as the legend notes: "Et plurima mortis imago" (And many are the faces of death). According to Hogarth, both physicians and quacks are in the same Company of Undertakers". (Helfand p. 81).‎
