    God floods the earth, destroying the last of the evil of humanity saving only Noah, and his family. Doré depicts the last moments of these people desperately trying to scale a mountain trying to save themselves while Noah's ark is in the foreground. Saved from the continuously rising water, those on the mountain will not be.
