^^^ Ok, I'll answer... It means that we were created with his resemblance. So, we can imply that God has human characterisitcs. In your verse it states that Elohim made humans in His image, but then it defines this image as male and female. From this we can conclude that the attributes of God are both masculine and feminine. Imho, since He created Adam first, it means He has more resemblance with him, but then He created woman, so He must have some "womanish" in Him also... The same way Jesus & Yehovah are 2 in One, separate but joined, One but 2. In the same way we could say that He has made us human beings 1 & 2, separate but joined(in marriage).Genesis 2:21 Then God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the person; and while he was sleeping, he took one of his ribs and closed up the place from which he took it with flesh. 22 The rib which ADONAI, God, had taken from the person, he made a woman-person; and he brought her to the man-person. 23 The man-person said, "At last! This is bone from my bones and flesh from my flesh. She is to be called Woman [Hebrew: ishah], because she was taken out of Man [Hebrew: ish]." 24 This is why a man is to leave his father and mother and stick with his wife, and they are to be one flesh. 25 They were both naked, the man and his wife, and they were not ashamed.Mark 10:6 However, at the beginning of creation, God made them male and female. 7 For this reason, a man should leave his father and mother and be united with his wife, 8 and the two are to become one flesh. Thus they are no longer two, but one. 9 So then, no one should break apart what God has joined together."
It's a beautiful story & a beautiful parallel imho...
I remembered seeing smthg about the name Elohim having a female connotation so I googled it & here's a nice short article about it : https://sites.google.com/site/yahwehelohiym/an-ancient-view-of-god/the-masculine-and-feminine-nature-of-elohim
I do not advocate any of the material on that website apart from the link I just gave you.
