1 Thess 416 was born out of the meditation of that verse in the scriptures. It says; "For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a loud cry of summons, with the shout of an archangel, and with the blast of the trumpet of God. And those who have departed this life in Christ will rise first." In the middle of the image sits a soul who is not in on the departure. The background illustrates those who were dead in Christ rising to His glory.
