“Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah.
And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.”

Jonah 1:17

“I always loved the Jonah story,” says James C. Christensen. “When I thought about the scripture that said the Lord had ‘prepared a great fish’ to swallow the recalcitrant prophet, I went home and got to thinking that if I were God, I’d make a really neat-looking fish. So I painted what I thought it might look like. The thing to remember is that the window is a one-way mirror. If Jonah could see out, it would be just another vacation cruise.”
