This rendering is part of a collection of illustration I was asked to do for a college
professor who taught a course on Daniel / Revelation at a Bible college which I attended. He used these illustrations as part of his teaching material .
In the Book of Daniel, Daniel the prophet had a dream, in which four beasts , different from each other, came out of a stormy ocean . Each beast represented a monarchy that will rise and fall in history, each will have rule over the civilized world.
The leopard with Four wing represent the monarchy on the Grecian.
Daniel chapter 7 : 6
" After this I kept looking , and behold , another one , like a leopard, which had
on it's back four wings of a bird ; the beast also had four heads, and
dominion was given to it.
Written by Stephen J. Vattimo
