Art = Naming Creation

Creating art, at its best, is more like Adam naming the animals than it is like creating idols. What (would have?) happened if Adam, when he saw a particular animal, was so overwhelmed with the beauty, etc of that creature that he didn't want to limit himself to just a few syllables. Instead, he wanted to write a poem, a song, or perhaps had a visual idea in his head that represented the animal more directly and precisely than just a few syllables could have sufficed to do. Maybe he wanted to paint a painting, or carve a sculpture, that depicted what he had just seen and experienced, all as a means of giving glory to God, all as an extended exercise in naming Creation. Maybe.
