This woodcut depicts the Biblical story when Eve offers Adam a bite of the fruit of knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden. Depicted just prior to being expelled from paradise, the two figures commune harmoniously with a mélange of animals ranging from giraffe, lion, and deer, to birds of all kinds. The image’s profuse detail causes the viewer’s eye to move constantly around the composition, taking in the abundant information put forward by the diverse patterning.
