Revelation

I am busy illustrating the last book of the Bible, a treasury of inspiration for artists!

the pale horse

Rev 6:1-8 The four horses and their riders symbolise the stages of war. The pale green horse represents disease, closely followed by death. One commentary on Revelation says that the horses symbolise the full circle of human depravity: Man’s lust to go to war, civil war, social injustice and famine, disease and death.
