A scene from the two-sided folio from Hartmann Schedel's The Book of Chronicles, or in German Das Buch der Chroniken (1493), depicting God creating Adam from clay. This clay is interpreted alchemically as the "prima materia," or first matter, from which all life springs. Beside the pair of God and Adam, nature is depicted as a harmonious eden with free-flowing waters and animals grazing nearby.
