The Great Day of his Wrath

"I find this image, first seen as an engraving in the 1970s, so frighteningly prophetic. I chose it because it is a picture of what is happening today. You've got Iraq and the Twin Towers on the one side, and the world's worst recorded hurricanes in Jamaica, Haiti and Florida on the other. I don't want to be a sandwich-board man, but this seems to be coming true"
