I have thought about this for some time and have look for a piece of art and have been unable to find it. What i am looking for is a piece of art that represents and show the 7 days it took God to create the world and its inhabitants. You can find art that has to do with the creation but nothing that shows the actual progression. What i am looking for is something that flows but also allows for each day to be noticed.Here are a couple artist in particular my wife likes there style (J Kirk Richards, Brian Kershisnik and Greg olsen) in that order. I envision a horizontal piece of art but dont limit yourself to that if you have a great idea. If horizontal we would blow it up to about 4 ftish wide and i imagine 1-2ftish tall when printed. Please send any questions you might have. Im OK if this project takes longer than a week
In case anyone forgot here are the days abbreviated and in more detail.
1 day- light and dark (this could be the galaxies and matter that exist in outer space, the dark areas and light areas)
2 day- heavens clouds oceans
3 day -land/ plants flowers and trees
4 day- sun moon stars lesser and greater lights
5 day- ocean creatures and birds bugs
6 day- land animals and men (Adam and eve)
First day: Genesis 1:3–5 divided the light from the darkness.And I, God, called the light Day; and the darkness, I called Night.
Second day: Genesis 1:6–8 Let it divide the waters from the waters; and it was done; And I, God, made the firmament(see definition of this word on line) and divided the waters. And I, God, called the firmament Heaven.
Third day: Genesis 1:9–13 Let there be dry land; and it was so.
And I, God, called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters, called I the Sea. Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, the fruit tree yielding fruit, after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed should be in itself upon the earth.
Fourth day: Genesis 1:14–19 And I, God, made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night, and the greater light was the sun, and the lesser light was the moon; and the stars also were made even according to my word .And the sun to rule over the day, and the moon to rule over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness
Fifth day: Genesis 1:20–23 Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl which may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.And I, God, created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind; and I, God, saw that all things which I had created were good.And I, God, blessed them, saying: Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the sea; and let fowl multiply in the earth;
Sixth day: Genesis 1:24–27 or Moses 2:24–27 Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping things, and beasts of the earth after their kind, and it was so;And I, God, made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and cattle after their kind, and everything which creepeth upon the earth after his kind; and I, God, saw that all these things were good.
And I, God, said unto mine Only Begotten, which was with me from the beginning: Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and it was so. And I, God, said: Let them have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. And I, God, created man in mine own image, in the image of mine Only Begotten created I him; male and female created I them.
Seventh day: Genesis 2:1–3 And on the seventh day I, God, ended my work, and all things which I had made; and I rested on the seventh day from all my work, and all things which I had made were finished, and I, God, saw that they were good;And I, God, blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it; because that in it I had rested from all my work which I, God, had created and made.
