This original copper engraving is from the monumental work by the paleontologist Johann Jakob Scheuchzer (Aug.2, 1672- June 23, 1733), who believed in the literal meaning of the Bible. For instance, he believed that the Great Flood happened and was convinced that he had in his fossil collection the remains of a human victim who had perished in that Flood. Scheuchzer published this work, attempting to illustrate and help to explain the entire Bible based on the latest state of scientific knowledge, which turned out to be one of the most expensive Bible productions ever. The engraver signed the engraving and t are many signatories, showing that t was a large group of artists and artisans that worked on this wonderful undertaking.
