A hand-colored etching of a thin male figure riding a white horse over a group of men lying on the ground. The men lay behind the horse, one covered in blood and another clutching his stomach. The figure carries a sword and wears a crown, both made of fire, and holds a snake-like creature in his other hand. Fire and smoke emit from the horse’s tail, where demons fly behind it. In the background, numerous amounts of dead pigs lie on the ground.
