Notes(s):

From the 1511 Latin edition of the Apocalypse with the letterpress text of chapters twelve and thirteen on the reverse. The image derives from verses in chapter eight describing the events after the opening of the seventh seal. Dürer was probably influenced by the woodcut in the 1483 Koberger Bible, although the idea of showing the words We We We (Woe! Woe! Woe!) issuing from the eagle's beak comes from the 1485 Grüninger Bible.
