The story of the creation of the world, with imagery ranging from esoteric Jewish mythology to modern scientific theory. Rabbi Harry Sky assisted me in my research. My main reference book was Louis Ginzberg's Legends of the Jews. It draws largely from the body of literature known as Midrash, an "imaginative retelling and elaboration" on Bible stories.

The total piece is 40'h x 28' wide x 1/2"d.
