THE LOST BOOK OF NOSTRADAMUS
PLATE # 45

[To view larger plate image - click on picture]

In this image we see the following objects for consideration:

This is Luther's depiction of the Jewish serpent [see image 18] about to be killed by the sword, which is powered by the 'STAR'. The STAR is in turn powered by the SUN, representative of Jesus. Notice that plate 18 and 45 depict the hair of the beast as red - indicating Esau, i.e. the Jews.

In the symbology of these images, according to the artist, the
SUN = JESUS
CRESCENT = MARY
[in this instance mother of Jesus]
STAR = SON OF JESUS

Two Stalks of WHEAT, one missing
THE 7 FLEUR de LIS symbols represent France
