This is one of Albrecht Dürer's most famous woodcuts. It depicts the four horsemen said in the Book of Revelation to hail the end of the world: Death, Famine, War, Plague (from left to right). Note that the horsemen are trampling all men beneath them, including a king; this serves as a reminder not to be too vain or proud, for death, destruction and judgement will eventually come to all.
