About this Fire Portrait.

This subject, the Red Horse, is not in the Brust story, but I have created both character-portraits from the story, and those that could be in the story, but not named, and, other creatures that fall into, the “dark-side”.


Red Horse:
“The second horseman, War on the Red Horse as depicted in a thirteenth-century Apocalypse manuscript.  When He broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come.” And another, a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him.

— Revelation 6:3-4 NASB

The rider of the second horse is often taken to represent War (he is often pictured holding a sword upwards as though ready for battle) or mass slaughter.  His horse’s color is red (πυρρός, from πῦρ, fire); and in some translations, the colour is specifically a “fiery” red. The color red, as well as the rider’s possession of a great sword, suggests blood that is to be spilled.”  (Source:  The Four Horsemen, Wikipedia).
