The Rider Faithful and True upon the White horse  

The layout consists of six horsemen upon their respective mounts arranged in three plain bands with a star-studded ground in reference to the battle in heaven. The riders move from left to right as if on the march. The only difference between the rider in the top right-hand corner, who represents Christ, and the others is that he carries his sword in his mouth. The sword in his mouth represents the preaching to punish unbelievers.
