Mortality

The volcano is depicted as being very furious and exploding fiercely. However, the sea is very calm and untouched by the harmful volcano. It represents how Noah's Ark was in the sea with mankind and animals, but nothing happened to them. However, everything else in the world was destroyed by God's anger because he regretted creating the Earth. In Genesis 7 it states, "Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; people and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark". Moreover, it shows that everything will have to face mortality one day. The painting shows people's and the Earth's destruction through nature.
This painting also depicts God's anger toward the people on the Earth. God thinks that the people have become violent. In Genesis 6 God says, " I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them". The painting shows the destruction of mankind through God. Mortality is shown here as well, whether its in the form of God or through nature, mortality reaches every living thing.
