Artist’s view of a sacrifice to Moloch in Bible Pictures with brief descriptions by Charles Foster, 1897. Original caption: “This is an idol named Molech. A great many people used to pray to this idol. It had the head of a calf, and was made of brass, and it was hollow inside. There was a place in the side to make a fire in it. When it got very hot the wicked people used to put their little children in its arms. The little children were burned to death there.
