This artwork depicts my version of the “Noah’s Ark”. The three animals are my favourite animals. It was my greatest joy to be able to draw freely using my imagination.
The world is about to be flooded and there are still obstacles between the snails and the Ark. The sea between the Ark and the snails represents the obstacles the snails have to overcome in order to be safe from the flood. I chose to illustrate this because the Ark, which represents God, provides a sense of hope that motivates everyone – that no matter who you are, to face all your challenges and not give up.
In the Old Testament, God describes the Promised Land as “a land flowing with milk and honey” (Exod. 3:8; Num. 14:8; Deut. 31:20; Ezk. 20:15), which is a beautiful graphical way of highlighting the agricultural richness of the land. God brought His people out of slavery in Egypt to a prosperous land of freedom, blessing and the knowledge of the Lord.
