Re: Noah.


I haven't read all the posts but here's my two cents.

Yes, Noah was known for building the arc and your sketch does show a man with a hammer and a piece of wood.

But, his connection with animals, I believe, is a much stronger association and would lead to a more recognizable image.

And don't forget the dove at the end of the story - another possible recognizable image.

Just a thought.
