Apocalypse: Trumpet V, Locust Plague -- John, nimbed, raises right hand in blessing, and extends left hand; book is on ground next to him. He looks toward four grasshoppers on ground, and wellhead flanked by two doors, one with key in lock. Smoke rises from the wellhead and three hybrids with heads of men, crowned, with long hair, wearing mail on breast, on bodies of winged horses, with horned serpents as tails. Angel flies above, blowing trumpet. Apocalypse: Trumpet V, Falling Star -- Star falls in smoke over the wellhead; sun is above. Illustration of Revelation 9:1-10.
