Item description for How Noah Saved The Animals: Scenes from the Old Testament (Adventures in Art) by Hildegard Krestschmer...
This collection of artistic masterpieces brings to life fifteen of the Bible's most beloved tales, in a richly illustrated volume designed and written especially for children.
Featuring Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam and Brueghel's Entry of the Animals into Noah's Ark, Bol's The Ten Commandments, Rembrandt's Belshazzar's Feast, among numerous other works, the book invites children to engage in the artistic interpretations of questions they themselves might ask: How did Noah save the animals from the flood? Why was Jonah swallowed by a whale? What was the Garden of Eden like? Full page reproductions and details of each work accompany engaging texts. This celebration of art and the Bible presents younger audiences with a dazzling array of religious expression while it introduces them to some of the world's great artists.
