Lamb with seven horns and seven eyes in sky, standing on the rainbow, holding a standard with cross. Blood jets from Lamb's wound, collected in a cup by figure wearing mitre. Around lamb are the four evangelical beasts, full of eyes. Beyond them are the twenty four Elders, worshiping. Below is a crowd of people holding branches—palm branches? John kneels in foreground, speaking with one of the elders.
