The Four Horsemen by Keithwormwood The Four Horsemen by Keithwormwood
And I saw when the uniformed man opened one of the files, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four monitors saying "Come and see." I saw, and behold on the screen was a white horse: and he that sat on him had a rifle; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
And when he had opened the second file, I heard the second monitor say, Come and see.
And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great missile.
And when he had opened the third file, I heard the third monitor say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
And I heard a voice in the midst of the four screens say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of rice for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the coal.
And when he had opened the fourth file, I heard the voice of the fourth monitor say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and nuclear fire followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with bullet, and with hunger, and with death, and with the infernal machines of man.

This is one of the most fascinating visual interpretations of Revelations that I have ever seen.  The detail and originality is magnificent.

This has to be one of if not the most vivid portrayals of the four horsemen of apocalypse I've ever seen,love the modern touch.

I searched for the Four Horsies for inspiration and came across this, I've gotta say, this looks goddamn epic. I love things like these.

So if I were making this into a game or narrative:
Western society may recognize the four horsemen but Eastern societies won't
so that means they will either defy the harbingers or they will unwittingly serve them
hopefully it might be the former
