KEEP CALM FAMINE by CarlosAE KEEP CALM FAMINE by CarlosAE
Hi folks! It's been a long while after submitting my deviation some months ago. Good to be back! :D

Anyways, here's my "Keep Calm and" fan art of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse presence: Famine.

Here's a definition of Famine: The severe shortages of Food & Water, as through crop failure or disaster. The first mentioned in Scripture was so grievous as to compel Abraham to go down to the land of Egypt (Gen. 26:1). Another is mentioned as having occurred in the days of Isaac, causing him to go to Gerar (Gen. 26:1, 17). But the most remarkable of all was that which arose in Egypt in the days of Joseph, which lasted for seven years (Gen. 41-45).

Famines were sent as an effect of God's anger against a guilty people (2 Kings 8:1, 2; Amos 8:11; Deut. 28:22-42; 2 Sam. 21:1; 2 Kings 6:25-28; 25:3; Jer. 14:15; 19:9; 42:17, etc.). A famine was predicted by Agabus (Acts 11:28). Josephus makes mention of the famine which occurred A.D. 45. Helena, queen of Adiabene, being at Jerusalem at that time, procured corn from Alexandria and figs from Cyprus for its poor inhabitants.

"When the Lamb opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, 'Come!' I looked, and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, 'A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!'" (Rev. 6:5-6 NIV).

I added the Black Horse png image to describe the Horse's color appearance. Next, I overlay the Scale that tells what Famine's Signature Weapon (or at least the object's example), I added skinny dead vines (2 of them), the cracked ground which signifies the presence of Scarcity. I added the planet Mars (PNG) because in the past, it used to be Habitat with a normal climate. Sadly the planet lost its Global Magnetic Field alongside with Atmosphere, causing Mars to be a cold, Dry planet. Now, life on mars is growing with discoverable Ice Caps of Water thanks to numerous observers. :D
