Below are the three archangels, Gabriel, Michael and Raphael and below these a choir of angels. Springing from the feet of Christ is the River of life coursing through flowering gardens of paradise and along its banks are every kind of people in reunion, mothers finding their Babes again, husbands their wives, brothers their sisters, kings and priests.
