God’s creation of Man (Genesis 1:27) 

‘Go forth and multiply’ (Genesis 1:28)


This exhortation has obviously been taken literally, as there are now more than seven billion humans on the planet.

We see Adam, with a fig (one) leaf covering his navel. A navel which rationally should not be there, since he was the first
man created.

Adam’s hand is outstretched to God’s x-rayed hand so that we may attempt to define the actual nature of the divinity
hidden behind its iconographic representation.
