These 24 faces are Peter Olsen’s interpretation of the elders who figure in Revelation, the last book of the Bible, a description of Armageddon. It’s a distinctly different art work for the elders, usually portrayed traditionally, as they are described in the Bible, as dressed in white with crowns of gold. The original of this oil on panel is 48 x 60 inches, part of a body of work by Olsen that portrays scenes from Revelation. Interesting approach. (Image: Fine Art America)
