This panel is part of a triptych dedicated to the Creation, work of Corrado de Mochis from Cologne based on the cartoon by Giuseppe Arcimboldi. The work depicts God the Father in the act of creating the firmament. It is held in the Milan Duomo Museum and most likely came from the the Duomo's apse window V21, dedicated to stories from the Old Testament.
