Pagan Genesis by White-Nuts Pagan Genesis by White-Nuts
Pagan Genesis

Pagan: Professing no religion; heathen.
---

The idea behind this piece was to create an abstract metaphor to Genesis, thus it being a Pagan Genesis. I also wanted to play a bit with the idea that a miracle is something divine and that spellcraft is something pagan, but in the end they are the same thing. The diference is in the eye of the beholder.

Please note that I am in no way worshipping paganism or criticising any religion or faith.

I'd like to thank all the people that commented explaining better what paganism really is. As I got that definition from a dictionary I assumed it was indeed correct. To make it short, Paganism is any religion that is of non Judeo-Catholic, Jewish or Muslim faith and often reffers to any nature-based religion.

Whoow, this is awesome! I really like it. Have you thought about making it into wallpaper form?

I'm Fusion Linux project leader and we are looking for some images that we could include in by default in our Linux distribution.

We have tens of thousands of installs, and we would also list all artists that have their art in our distribution and spread the word of your great work that way.

If you would consider this proposal this would a lot to us, because we would like to share and promote great artwork that you have made.

Please check out our home page - [link]

We need all art to be in few different wallpaper resolutions, and licenced under some Creative Commons licence that permits us to distribute artwork freely, just to be clear you still keep all the copyright just give us permission to distribute it for non-commercial purposes. If you aren't familiar with Creative Commons licences I suggest you use "Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs" and also check full list of differenc CC licences at [link]

pagan isn't so much "no religion" anymore but it is a very general term

About the paganism..I would like to add that Paganism is mainly based on old Nordic and Swedish myths, well mainly..more or less entirely.
Pretty much like the LotR books, Tolkien used a lot of old Pagan myths in his works.

I'm proud of my paganism. And no, the story I know about genesis is different than this. Less abstract.

Anyway, I know the title is methaphorical, so nice work :)

I just had a discussion today about how the only difference between a "miracle" and "magic" is who people choose to give credit to.

But this is gorgeous. I love it. :clap:
