The Saint John's Bible Poster - 2 - Creation (Genesis 1:1-2:3)
One of four poster designs, created exclusively for St Martin-in-the-Fields, depicting illuminations from The Saint John's Bible.
2 - Creation (Genesis 1:1-2:3)
The Creation story unfolds within a framework of counting. As each day passes, the writer repeats his refrain: "And there was evening and there was morning, the first [or second or sixth] day." The structure of this illumination reflects the progression of days, with seven vertical strips, one for each day, and small golden squares arranged in sequences of seven.
