Rev. 13:11. Beast maned like a lion with lamb's horns comes up out of the earth. First beast, with the seven heads has one head bent back—wounded. A mass of worldly-looking people gathers and worships the wounded beast on their knees. Rain or fire falls around lamb-horned beast. Above, Christ sits with elaborate cloak, bishop's mitred crown, sickle in right hand. (14:14) Three angels: one with another sickle, one with sword and cross, another kneeling at left.
