St. John the Divine on Patmos Creating the Book of Revelation

I hope the title pretty much says it all here. This is for my ongoing “Heaven and Hell” series, which should comprise around 100 images on that theme. This one depicts St. John on the Greek island of Patmos in the process of writing the Book of Revelation (the last book of the New Testament that deals with prophecy and Apocalypse). Inspired by images by Bosch and others.
