"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.....And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that [it was] good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day." [Genesis 1:1-5]

Though smaller in size than the other panels, this painting is still sublime in conception, dominated by the centralized figure of God in a pink flowing robe, tearing through brownish murky darkness on one side and white whispy light on the other, symbolizing the origin of the universe.
