Apocalypse: Song of Moses and Lamb -- Christ, cross-nimbed, torso partially uncovered, raising right hand, extending left hand downward, is seated on arc, His feet resting on tripartite globe. He is flanked above by two angels playing trumpets. Below, five nude personifications of souls, four male, one female, emerge from holes in earth. One wears crown; another wears two-tiered tiara surmounted by cross; a third raises joined hands.
Illustration of Revelation 15:2-4.
