Hicks believed that Penn's treaty with the Indians was a partial fulfillment of Isiah's prophecy, with the Quakers establishing a peaceable kingdom on Earth. The verse on this painting is as follows: When the Great Penn his famous treaty made, With Indian Chiefs beneath the elm tree's shade. The Wolf with the Lambkin dwell in Peace, his grim carnivorous nature there did cease. The Leopard with the harmless kid laid down, and not one savage beast was seen to frown. The Lion with the Fatling on did move, a Little Child was leading them in Love. Famous People art print #27
