God Resting on the 7th Day

I thought this was a beautiful depiction of God resting on the seventh day of creation. A Samson-like figure sleeps wearily, just as one would expect someone who has just created the universe to do. And then I saw this copy of Rubens’ "Samson and Delilah."

Just look at Samson resting on the lap of Delilah — it is the same figure of God depicted in the picture above.   One can even discern the folds of Delilah’s dress on what looks like a big boulder on which “God” rests.  I think that the composer of the picture would have

1.  cleared Rubens’ painting of all images save that of Samson

2.  created a layer that he placed beneath the one of Samson

3.  added the picture of clouds and rainbow on that layer

 

A great Photoshop trick.
