Genesis 3

Show Explanation

This work is based on the first book of the bible, Genesis.
Within the piece, the main elements of the story of creation are depicted: the eyes of God and his son on earth, the creation of the earth and the cosmos, and the three great hypothetical questions. The piece is split down its centre, the left side illustrating the earth and the right the cosmos.

In the center, God’s helper brings the earth, where Jesus would be born, into the Milky Way galaxy, depicted as a concrete diagonal road that bisects the drawing from right to left.

The three figures on left in the foreground represent humanity and illustrate the three great hypothetical questions. The first figure has a hand that points to himself and stands for: Who are we? The second figure has a foot forward that stands for: Where are we going? The third figure has a question mark which stands for: Why are we here?
