The First and Second Days of Creation
Egg tempera and gold leaf on gessoed board

As Creator of the Universe, God is shown creating light out of chaos, separating light from darkness, and separating the waters above from the waters below.  (Genesis 1, 1-10)


This icon is based on an illumination in the Oxford Bible, a mid-13th
century English manuscript whose delightful illustrations are attributed to William de Brailes.


The “flame” carved board was made in Serbia.
