Image Title: Vision of the Four Beasts

Scripture Reference:

Description: As the four winds blow upon the waters, out of the sea emerge four beasts: one with the head of a lion and wings of the eagle; a second was in the form of a bear; the third beast with four heads and four wings; and the fourth beast had long teeth, multiple horns, and hooves like those of an ox. The image places these beasts on different continents to represent the four kings that will arise from the earth.
