Now look at this. A sketch of an ancient mosaic found in Greece. We have Zeus and Hera here creating the world in almost the same exact posture as God and Sophia. See the same spirits/cherubs bearing him up, representing his creative powers. The same outstretched arm, the female creatrix to his left, just like a bride always stands to the groom's left. Notice also the robe swirling in a circle just like in Michelangelo's painting.
