Apocalypse: Trumpet III, Burning Star -- John, nimbed is seated on island in landscape, holding open book on his lap with both hands. Above, flying angel blows trumpet. Star falls from flaming cloud toward seven men and one woman, all nude, in water, four raising both hands, one with hands on breast, one with hands joined. Water flows from rocky outcrop behind them. Illustration of Revelation 8:10-11.
