Apocalypse: Seal VI, Earthquake -- John, nimbed, hands raised, kneeling on one knee, looks on as nude souls, one crowned, go into caves, gesture, crouch on ground, run away. City in background leans. Stars fall. In sky, in gold cloud, book is open before lamb, nimbed, bleeding, raising right front hoof, holding cross-staff. At right are black sun and red crescent moon. Illustration of Revelation 6:12-15.
