Creation of the Animals

Jacopo “Il Tintoretto” Robusti, Creation of the Animals, 1551–52. Galleria del l'Accademia, Venice, Italy.

This painting shows God sending out the newly created birds and fish, meaning that this must be the fifth day of creation. The animals and humans must wait until the sixth day.
