The Creation of the Sun, the Moon and the Plants


The Creation of the Sun, the Moon and the Plants
Michelangelo Buonarroti 1475 – 1564
fresco — 1508-1512

Genesis 1:14 - And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

A fresco on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.

Two scenes are being depicted. On the right God creates the sun and the moon. On the left, seen from behind he is working on the plants and the trees.

According to Genesis the plants were made on the third day and the sun and the moon on the next day.
