Scripture Reference:

Description: An angel stands at the altar with a censer of burning incense, whose smoke rises up with the prayers of the saints to God, as seven angels with seven trumpets prepare to announce the coming of calamitous happenings. At the bottom foreground, and at lower left and right, are scenes from the first five trumpets. This image is flanked by Jesus holding an orb (left) and Abraham about to offer Isaac as a sacrifice. The symbols for the four Gospels are placed above (Matthew and Mark) and below (John and Luke) the left panel, while the angel (who prevented Abraham from slaying Isaac) and the ram and censer are shown above and below the right panel.
