The Judgment of the Gods (The Graven Images Bible)

The Judgment of the Gods (The Graven Images Bible) September 7, 2015

The Bible talks a lot about “graven images.” Where does that leave an engraver? Apparently it can lead to them making something called “The Illustrated Bible in Graven Images.” David Binnig has created a blog with a number of images made from linocuts. I particularly liked the one below, entitled “Judgment of the Gods,” since it puts actual gods from a variety of traditions into the picture, as a way of bringing new light to bear on the Biblical references to Yahweh as “enthroned among the gods.”
