Apocalypse: Trumpet VI, Horsemen -- John, rays as nimbus, is seated on island in landscape, holding with both hands, open book on his lap. He looks right toward bodies, some bleeding on ground; one man, wearing turban-like headgear raises both arms. Behind them is army, four foremost soldiers, astride horses with lions’ heads, possibly with flames emerging from mouths over the fallen men. Tails of three horses are horned serpents. Six soldiers hold lances, two bannered; two hold halberds. Illustration of Revelation 09:16-19
