Description

Engraving - Not signed - 1624

The Prophet Daniel's Vision of the Roman and Other Empires. The images on this page represent the four kingdoms that were mentioned as Daniel's visions in the Bible's Old Testament Book of Daniel: 1: A lion with eagle's wings. 2. A bear raised up on one side. 3. A winged leopard with 4 heads. 4. A beast with iron teeth and 10 horns. One interpretation of this vision is that the kingdom of Rome represents the fourth kingdom.
