Description

The silhouette of Noah’s ark can be seen in the background, floating on waters threatening to submerge the entire landscape as clusters of people, mixing with animals, try to find refuge on rocks and mounds, and up trees which break under the strain.

The caption reads in the original French: Le déluge (Gén., VII, 1-6).
