Holbein: The Cracked Creation

The escutcheon Albulanus

The Creation from Holbein's Great Dance of Death. This copy is from 1547, and ever since 1543 there had been a vertical crack in the woodblock right through the middle of the picture and God's face. There's a larger version here: Creation, 1547.

Creation, 1547
