What are modern readers supposed to do with them, and why are some of them so odd? In this video, we explore why the laws were given to ancient Israel and how they fit into the overall storyline of the Bible. Angels and Cherubim. Or that cherubim are not cute, chubby babies? In this video, we explore the biblical portrayals of these spiritual beings to understand just who they are and what role they play in the story of the Bible.
Divine Council. What on earth is the divine council? This biblical phrase describes the concept of spiritual powers that God created to have authority alongside humans, until everyone rebels and creates huge problems that only Jesus can resolve. We dig into all of this and more in episode three of our Spiritual Beings series. Did you know that the biblical word for God is actually a title and not a name?
And did you know that this title can refer to other spiritual beings as well as to the creator God? Also, Vol. II has some cloth separation from boards. Some light dampstaining. Chromolithographs are quite nice, and most are in great condition. Also 84 full-page wood engravings in the set, too. More information about this seller Contact this seller 8.

Because of their beauty of color and form, the lepidoptera butterflies and moths abound among illustrated entomologies.
Numerous multivolume works were published, usually with many individuals illustrated life-size on each page. Sometimes the figures were simply arrayed in a grid pattern, a layout common in illustrations of beetles and other insects, but often, intricate geometric arrangements created pretty designs.
Space was frequently conserved by flipping over one wing, thus showing both dorsal and ventral views simultaneously. Many artists also included the insects' food plants and all stages of their metamorphosis, from egg to adult. Maria Sibylla Merian was the first to depict these spectacular transformations, in her famed study of the insects of Surinam. The quality of published illustrations was dependent on the skills of the craftspeople involved in translating the artists' designs into a graphic medium.
These essential middlemen and women have in general not been accorded the recognition due them: many prints do not display the engraver or lithographer's name, and many of these artisans were known only by their last names. Some zoological bibliographies do not even specify the medium of the illustrations, much less the identities of artists and printmakers. Those that focus on the art, such as the Bradley Martin catalogs and Nissen's bibliographies, are outstanding exceptions. Although some artists cut their own woodblocks, or engraved or etched their own designs on the metal plate, it was lithography, invented at the end of the eighteenth century, and dominant in the second half of the nineteenth, that allowed artists to draw directly on the printing stone.
Many zoological illustrators took advantage of this opportunity, creating what are sometimes termed artist lithographs. Others employed lithographers who sometimes were illustrators in their own right to transfer their drawings. To produce colored illustrations, prints created by all of the above methods were colored by hand. Consequently, the quality of the coloring often varied from print to print.
Even after techniques for printing in color were developed, retouching by hand was usual in the creation of a fine print. The printmaker might or might not have been the person who actually printed the illustration as opposed to cutting the design in the wood or metal, or drawing on the lithographic stone. Some illustrations credit not only the artist and engraver or lithographer, but also the printmaker. Those who hand-colored the prints were hardly ever mentioned, and were often female -- either members of the artist's family, or, especially in the nineteenth century, poorly paid artisans.
