a "god's eye view"

James Dive, an Australian artist, has recreated scenes from the Bible such as the parting of the Red Sea to show what they would have looked like from space. The 'God's eye view' re-enacts moments including Noah's Ark in the floods and Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden as seen from a satellite. Dive spent more than three months painstakingly researching the Biblical locations on Google Earth, and then combined them on a computer with 3D models of elements from the religious text.
