I chose the story of Noah and the ark because it shows a promise from God that is true up till today! I also chose it because I love animals.
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.
My artwork shows Abraham gazing at the stars and God promising him many descendants. For the black background, I used acrylic with a layer of glue on it to sprinkle the stars on. I coloured Abraham and the rock with colour pencils. This is one of the most iconic promises that God has made in the Bible as it marks the beginning of Israel.
