Thanks para and justme, unfortunately that image isn't really clear enough or big enough to get the detail I'm after, and it only shows the bottom
You can see lines of dark figures lining up behind the phoenix, perhaps moving into a doorway/opening behind it. The phoenix itself appears to be on a
mount of earth with what looks like machinery or a tunnel network underneath, and perhaps a larger tunnel leading out of the mound to the left.
On the left side are figures rising out of a pit, with the uppermost figure, a woman, holding onto a rope held by a male figure outside the pit.
In the middle left foreground, there is a figure which appears to be perhaps wearing armour and perhaps holding a parchment in its left hand.
Middle left background is a dark-skinned man or child dancing.
Middle right in the background appears to be someone kneeling before a red figure.
In the right foreground appears to be a tomb-like mound with a dead(?) man standing atop it and another figure to the right of him and in the tomb
Right backround appears to be a man tending a rearing white horse.
Above the phoenix I think I can make out a child sitting at the feet of two figures.
You could make some biblical Revelation connections to "hell and death" giving up their dead, and the "pale horse".
Maybe also some reptilian connections with the tunnels underneath.
The figures lining up and going into the doorway reminds me of H.G.Wells story
about the Molochs living under the earth and feeding on the humans above.
Need to see it in more detail to really get a grasp of it.
