Dans l'hospice d'Issenheim, un musicien maléfique, verdâtre, portant des plumes, juste au dessus de l'ange musicien, invite les malades à méditer sur l'omniprésence du péché dans leur vie, source de leur maladie. Egalement sur ce panneau central : la nativité montrant le pouvoir rédempteur du sacrifice du Christ symbolisé par un morceau de corail faisant référence au sang du Christ, talisman pour repousser les forces du diable. Retable d'Issenheim fini en 1515.
