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.
