This rendering is part of a collection of illustration I did for a professor, who taught a class on the books of Daniel / Revelation, the course was about prophecy of the end of the world. The professor used these illustration in his teach materials.
The vision of the four beats was given to the prophet Daniel by God , to reveal the 4 different monarchies that will rise and fall, that will have rule over the civilized world throughout the history of man kind.
The bear represents The Persian monarchy .
Daniel chapter 7 : 5
" And behold, another beast , a second one, resembling a bear. And it was raised up on one side, and three ribs were in it"s mouth between it"s teeth ;
and thus they said to it, ' Arise , devour much meat !'
