Adam and Eve illustrations are very common in the history of Christian art, but pictures showing God in the act of Creation before He made Adam are extremely rare. This shows the 6th Day just after He has made the birds and animals but before He made Adam.
It’s from a late Medieval breviary, made by Flemish Dominican monks, a gift from a nobleman to Queen Isabella, the one who funded Christopher Columbus.
It is an idyllic, beautiful scene because God made things good. It would look good on any wall, but it also could be used as a talking game with children, naming the animals. Is that a unicorn? Is that a blue rabbit? A nice reminder of God as the maker of all things, regardless of His methods.
