In this painting by an artist named DiPaolo, the creation story in the Bible is honored in its entirety, with concentric circles representing the various firmaments, and the earth in the middle, protected from the sun [which doesn't appear in the account until the 4th 24 hour day in the Holy Book].
God here, as he is speaking the world into existance, has a face similar to Jesus, that glows like the sun, however.
|In this traditional painting by Norris, Christ appears in a black or dark robe [like a magician], apparently standing in a fire or burning bush, and pulls a completely formed Eve out of the side of the sleeping Adam.|
Norris is not so tied to tradition however, that he cannot see the possiblities in a more modern representation of the naked bodies of Adam and Eve, who seem completely oblivious to their nakedness.
Genesis 2:25 "And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed."
And indeed, why should they be? God makes only good stuff!
|Nowadays, photography is often used for art in the place of drawing or painting, but the Adam and Eve theme still persists. Genesis 1:28 "And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replentish the earth...."|
