William Blake ‘God Judging Adam’, 1795 Blake's figure of God resembles Urizen, a tyrannical law-maker in Blake's own mythology. God holds his sceptre in his right hand here but, because images are reversed during printing, Blake would have had to show it in God's left hand on the copper printing plate.
The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, W. Blake, 1790. This illustration refers to a vision of Böhme, in which heaven and hell are within one another, 'and yet neither is apparent to the other'. The divine, fertile angels 'are in the gentle water’s matrix', and the hellish and infertile 'are enclosed in the hard fire of anger'. www.ritmanlibrary.com
