Prisoners Under the Footstool

This sketch is from a larger one where Pharaoh (Amenhotep II 1448-1420 BC) places his feet upon his enemies, in this case his enemies were Negroes and Semites, who were caught in a snare. Notice that the subjugated persons have their arms tied behind their backs and "have now been made his footstool." The "footstool" is mentioned in Scripture as apart of the throne of the king and symbolizes God's throne.

"Exalt the LORD our God, And worship at His footstool--He is holy."

- Psalm 99:5

"The LORD said to my Lord, "Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool."

- Psalm 110:1
