Summary:
The Creative Force emerges from the center amidst clouds, fire and mist to form man out of earth and water. At the right, the sun draws up the rising column of water that swarms with life. A symbolic tree is being watered as mankind gathers the fruits of the earth. On the left, the moon pulls tidal waves in which a whale swims.
