The traditional scene is modelled after the Christian Resurrection referenced in 1 Corinthians 15:52. The Last Judgment, from the Book of Revelation, was included in the symbology by the Rider-Waite tarot deck adding the sea giving up its dead which references Revelation 20:13.
An angel, possibly Metatron, is depicted blowing a great trumpet, from which hangs a white flag bearing a red cross. A group of humans (man, woman, and child) of grayish complexion stand, arms spread, looking up at the angel in awe. The Sleeping Dead are apparently emerging from crypts or graves. There are snow covered mountains in the background indicating a winter theme, similar to The Hermit (Tarot card), as a symbolical ending.
- In the Thoth tarot deck, Judgement is referred to as The Aeon and includes pictorial representations of Nuit, Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit and Harpocrates.
- In the Darkana tarot deck, Judgement is referred to as Prudence to better reflect the symbolism of the four Cardinal Virtues (fortitude, justice, temperance, prudence).
