Rev. 7. Four angels holding swords stand on the ground, looking in four different directions. The four winds blow from the clouds. A fifth angel holds a chalice and paints crosses on the brows of a crowd of kneeling people. A sixth angel flies, holding a wooden cross over his shoulder. There are various plants and grasses shown in the foreground; the four armed angels stand in front of a fruit tree: apples? landscape in the background, with rolling hills and a town in the distance. Church spire visible.
