Close up of the Artist's Impression of the Doom - Top Right Hand Side.

Above: from left to right and down.

  • Christ raising his hands in judgement, His robe is open to show the wounds in his side.

  • Scroll with the words "Descedite a me maledicti in ignem aeternum' (Depart from me ye accursed into the eternal fire' Matthew 25 v40)

  • The Twelve Apostles sit on either side of Christ.

  • St John the Baptist  (just out of site - see inset below) dressed in a camel-skin robe from which a hoof still dangles. (Matthew 3 v9)

  • A sword pointing from St John the Baptist to Christ.  It is more usual to see this pointing from Christ's mouth towards the damned. (Revelation 19 v15)

  • An angel blowing the Last Trump.

 

From top to bottom:
  • An angel blowing the Last Trump
  • Figures rising from their graves, hands raised in alarm.
  • Fraudulent Alewives. (follow link for more historical information on alewives) chained together (naked apart from their mugs and head- dress)  and being led towards Hell by a demon.  Onlookers would have recognised them from their ale mugs and fashionable head-dresses.
  • A horned devil carrying a figure over his shoulder.

John the Baptist   can be seen here identifiable by his dress: a camel-skin robe from which a hoof still dangles. (Matthew 3 v9)  A sword also points from John the Baptist to Christ.  It is most unusual to see this pointing from Christ's mouth towards the damned. (Revelation  19 v15)
