The image of Daniel in the lions den was an image of God snatching us from the jaws of death; it was popularly depicted in early Christian art in the catacombs and carved on the side of sarcophagi, as in this example from the Vatican Museum. The story of Daniel's miraculous escape is read in today's Liturgy (Wed, 34th week, I).
