What is that you already know about the creation of Adam? Is it that he was the father of man, and indeed the first human in this world? Is it that he was the first man with a message from God? Is it the first symbol of religion that we have in history?

What is the relation between Adam and the Creator?

In this painting, you might get the impression that the Creator is reaching out to Adam and not the other way round; He is the one more stretched out, and Adam is the one who is more relaxed. Does that depict the arrogance mankind has?

You may think of this painting as the relationship between a father and a son, and build your account on that if you don’t like it to be religious.

Write a short story, or a poem about what you can discern from this painting and share a link to your story with us here on Danny B. You can be generous and share a link to this writing prompt on your website or your social media.
