Apocalypse: Christ and Four Beasts -- John, nimbed, raising right hand to face, sits on island in landscape. Above, God, wearing cross-surmounted imperial crown, raising right hand in blessing, left hand resting on globe, is seated on throne with foot-rest. He is flanked by two benches on which sit Elders, crowned, most with joined hands, two orant. Only twenty are visible. All are surrounded by four beasts, winged, each body covered with eyes. Above God are seven flaming lamps.
