A Word from Michael: In many ancient traditions the Divine creative force of the universe is both masculine and feminine. They worked together, but the principle of action was feminine with the masculine power standing behind and supporting Her. In my painting, Creation, She is creating mankind. This is the opposite of Michelangelo���¢�¯�¿�½�¯�¿�½s painting of the Creation depicting God as a bearded patriarch creating Adam. But why is She painting Adam as a clown? Because she knows by giving Adam life and free will that he will make many mistakes through many lifetimes before he finally returns to Her. And there he is, dressed as a clown, adoring his Creator!
