John 1: 1-5 illustration art - in the beginning Bible

In the beginning was the Word,
And the Word was with God,
And the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him;
And without him was not any thing made that was made.
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
And the light shineth in darkness;
And the darkness comprehended it not.
John 1: 1-5

This illustration I made based on the first verses of the gospel of John. I always found it such a mysterious way of writing with so many words repeated over and over. So I thought it was time to look at it more closely.

I actually wanted to make an illustration, but for some reason I went to my paper box and started cutting and putting the elements together.

It was a little painstaking keeping all the parts in the right place for the photo and getting the shadow at the right side. But it worked!
If you look at it closely and longer I think you will find more and more in it.
