The Four Horsemen by jarling-art The Four Horsemen by jarling-art
And when the Lamb opened the first seal, I saw the first horse. The horseman held a bow. Now when the lamb opened the second seal, I saw the second horse. The horseman held a sword. And when the lamb opened the third seal, I saw the third horse. The horseman had a balance. Now when the lamb opened the fourth seal, I saw the fourth horse. The horseman was the pest. (Aphrodite’s Child) This piece was inspired by the Album Aphrodite’s Child 666 (the Apocalypse of John, 13/18)

Note that the names of the horsemen are: Conquest: rides the white horse
War: rides the red horse
Famine: rides the black horse
and Death:rides the pale/green horse
AND it's a scale not a balance
P.S. death carries a scythe to
P.P.S. i still like it just pointing this out(and all of this is just stuff i know so it my be wrong)

Amazing! it captures the epic nature of the Revelations perfectly. I personally thought the guy on the far left, on the white horse was a bit more majestic but that's a great piece of art. Congrats.

and i looked and beheld a pale horse. and his name that sat on him was death and hell followed with him.

i used to know that whole little paragraph. the rest is something about beats and things that the horsemen brought on

This is beautiful. Hands down.

I've been studing the Apocalypse for some time and I love the work you did here. I always see the horsemen as human beings, but to see at least ONE skeletal horsemen makes me pretty happy.

-faved- I love it :)

And at school, because we had four heads of discipline, we often called the Disciplinary Board "the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse". :devilish:

there are works where I feel too small to comment or criticise anything, or even say "wow", or "I like it". First I thought I would say nothing at all, but I just wanted to pay my respects and tell you...I think I'll just fav:) no words are needed.

All my respect for your wonderful work.
