The Creation of the Animals



The Creation of the Animals
Il Tintoretto 1518 – 1594
oil on canvas (151 × 258 cm) — ca. 1550

Genesis 1:20 - And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

Standing behind their creator, the animals still have to wait for a day. The newly-created birds and fish show that this must be the fifth day, whereas (according to Genesis) the animals were not created until the sixth day.

The crowded water shows that Jacopo 'Il Tintoretto' Robusti did his best to depict the Creator's command: "Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life [..]".
