Die Sechste Posaune (The Sixth Trumpet)

This work references the book in the bible revelations and the trumpets that are sounded in heaven by the angels at the worlds end. Each trumpet signals a new phase of the apocalypse. The empty desert recalls a loneliness and desolation that showcases the fear of ultimate end. Kiefer states "I am against the idea of the end, that everything culminates in paradise or judgement."
