ZOOM-IN: This soldier in the Antichrist’s army has fallen during the confrontation with the army of Saint Francis of Assisi. He watches with horror as the normally peaceful saint plunges a sword into the Antichrist’s chest. Villalpando’s dense compositions are almost acts of theater; the figures burst with movement and emotion.
