A large snake-like marine monster swims at the surface of the sea, rubbing its side against a rock
And God said: "Let the waters generate
Reptile with spawn abundant, living soul;
And let fawl flie above the earth."

Description

A large, snake-like marine monster swims at the surface of the sea, rubbing its side against a rock, as a flock of seabirds is seen at some distance caught in a shaft of light emanating from a break in the clouds.
