„Since I wanted to do something graphical again while carrying this idea around with me for some time already and because each New-Year needs a tiny little touch of Nostradamus anyway I hope you will enjoy this one. Let´s not set the world on fire lets light each others hearths instead.„

The Ink Spots – I Don’t Want To Set the World On Fire (1942)
White Horse (Conquer)
I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, „Come and see!“ I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.
— Revelation 6:1-2˄ NIV
Red Horse (War)
When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, „Come and see!“ Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other. To him was given a large sword.
— Revelation 6:3-4˄ NIV
Black Horse (Famine)
When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, „Come and see!“ I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, „A quart of wheat for a day’s wages, and three quarts of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!“
— Revelation 6:5-6˄ NIV
Pale Horse (Death)
When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, „Come and see!“ I looked and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hell was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine, plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
— Revelation 6:7-8˄ NIV
When the Lamb opened the fifth seal, I heard the voice of the fifth creature say, „Screw you all!“ ~ I looked and there before me was a dappled horse! Its Rider went by feet and didnt give a fuck. His name was Ignorance, and mankind followed right behind him.
