Creation

Meister Bertram   -  
Grabow Altarpiece: Creation

Six panels depict the Creation according to the commentary of Origen. In the first panel, the rebellious angels are expelled from Heaven to Earth. In the second, the divine Word is displayed. The third panel shows the creation of the sun, the moon and the stars (on the fourth day), while in the fourth panel vegetation is created (on the third day!). The animals, including birds and fish (!) are created in the fifth panel and Man emerges from the earth in the sixth. In all the panels, God, wearing a red robe, creates and blesses his work.
