The Portail des Libraires at Rouen Cathedral is surrounded by about 200 quatrefoil medallions. Most  are grotesques but some tell the Genesis story of Creation.

In the image above God creates the heavens and earth.

The separation of the sea from the firmament.

The creation of plants.

Creation of the sun and moon.

Creation of animals.

Creation of Man.

God rests on the seventh day.
