Apocalypse: Dragon attacked by Michael and Apocalypse: Dragon cast to Earth -- John, nimbed, hands raised, stands in landscape. Above, Archangel Michael, wearing armor, holding spear with both hands, pierces foot of falling winged devil with horns. Of three other angels with swords, one pierces other foot of the devil; another holds shield with left hand. Two other devils also fall toward flames and rocks where two serpents and another reptile-like head are visible. Illustration of Revelation 12:7-9.
