Genesis 22:9-10 (NLT)
9 When they arrived at the place where God had told Abraham to go, he built an altar and placed the wood on it. Then he tied Isaac up and laid him on the altar over the wood. 10 And Abraham took the knife and lifted it up to kill his son as a sacrifice to the LORD.
TIME OF DAY:
Indeterminate from scripture, I have set the scene at late morning.
Natural, sunlight, coming from the left.
Abraham, Isaac (bound & on the stone altar) & ram in bush.
This scene is quite similar to the previous one (Genesis 22 – Abraham & Isaac – Scene 03 – Sacrifice) & was designed for one of my “Bad Day” mugs. The scene is simpler than the previous one, with Abraham wearing a red outer robe, set against a much paler blue sky. These changes are designed to maximise the impact of the cartoon when it appears o the side of a mug.
See the previous cartoon for the notes regarding the geology, geography, & other information relating to this scene.
