Bible. N.T. Revelation. Greek architecture stretches out underneath heaven. The saved are enmeshed in the branches of a huge tree. On the right the damned are struck by lightning as they scrabble among coins and other valuables. Above an angry angel robed in black (Lucifer or Michael?) plunges down upon them, holding lightning in his hand
