Apocalypse: Christ, Adoration by Elders -- God, wearing cross-surmounted imperial crown, raising right hand in blessing, holding globe with left hand, is seated on throne with footrest. Two of four beasts, nimbed, are at His feet; other two flank the throne above. Elders, sixteen visible, holding crowns with both hands, kneeling, surround the throne. All encircled by cloud. Below, John, nimbed, hands raised, kneels next to open book on island in landscape. Illustration of Revelation 4:9.
