Thy Likeness

Man was created by the image and likeness of God. My question is, Can God change his image from time to time?

Reading the verse below led me to think that God has many images primarily because of our different looks and by the color of our skin. My color is asean different from white and black americans or the africans.

Gen 1:26  And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping animal that creepeth upon the earth.

As mentioned above, one characteristic of a man is the dominion over creatures living on earth. Though lion was tagged as the king of the Jungle, this is still limited as the lion have no control over the creatures of the sea. Therefore, there is no creature on earth that can make what a man can do for he can tame even the wildest animals.

Jas 3:7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of animals in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed by mankind:

The color of our skin depends on climate and geographical location. I think that if we remove  the outer skin of all individuals, we  all look the same in flesh and bones though this is not the image of God spoken of by the Scriptures.

Ps 17:15 As for me, I shall behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

It is in righteousness that we are likened to God. He therefore that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart is likened to God.

Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
