Apocalypse: Dragon imprisoned -- John, nimbed, stands at right, gesturing with both hands, and looking toward beast with seven lions’ heads, nimbed and crowned, five heads with seven horns. Chain around neck of beast is held by angel; another angel holding key with right hand and chain with left hand emerges from cloud. At right, angel appears again, holding with right hand, key in lock of door to prison. Through hole in wall of the prison, two of seven heads of the beast, with chain around neck, are visible. Illustration of Revelation 20:1.
