Rebellion ~ God placed his image bearers, humankind, in a perfect environment, in a perfect relationship with him, and gave them dominion and authority over God's created order. But mankind wasn't content to rule over creation and live in perfect harmony with it and God, they decided they wanted to be their own god and so, rebelled against God and messed up everything! The perfect relationship with God and creation was broken, fellowship was broken. The world and everything in it was subjected to death and despair.
This dramatic fist was painted as an underpainting, but when I saw the raw power of the gesture, I left it "unfinished." The grunge makes the act of defiance appear more violent and offensive.
