Early Middle Ages


In these genesis scenes of the "Grandval Bible" from the early Middle Ages,
about 840, we can see, how the consideration of physical characteristics,
the proportions and harmony of the design, has become unimportant.

The human being lived religiously, beyond earthly reality,
in an eschatological world awaiting God.
