Bible Reference & Cartoon Description

Exodus 1:22 (ANIV)
Then Pharaoh gave this order to all his people: “Every boy that is born you must throw into the Nile, but let every girl live.”

DRAWING NOTES:

TIME OF DAY:
Unspecified in Bible text. I have made it very early morning, the sun is just above the trees in my scene.

LIGHTING NOTES:
Sunlight from behind the trees back lights this scene.

CHARACTERS PRESENT:
Three Egyptian soldiers throwing Hebrew baby boys into the river Nile.
Nile Crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus)

RESEARCH/ADDITIONAL NOTES:
I found this picture quite a disturbing scene to draw & colour. The idea of throwing babies into a river would be abhorrent to most people, but not the king (Pharaoh) of Egypt – what a wicked man he must have been.

I decided to draw a Nile Crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus) lurking among some reeds to add additional menace to the hopeless situation of the baby boys.
