A bride walks in the desert. She takes off her bridal ornaments and turns into a harlot. A multitude of people crawl on their bellies, become sick and soon die. A volcano erupts. Ash covers the earth. The bride remembers her betrothal and repents–symbolically paving the way for the resurrection of her people. A final bridal march into a new heaven and earth takes place.
