After the creation Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden. Their time in Paradise cam to an end when Eve was seduced by the serpent into eating the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 3:1-24). Adam and Eve are depicted very realistically as ordinary, naked, no longer particularly young people. The serpent, borrowed from an engraving by Dürer, is a dragon with claws. According to the Bible the animal did not have to crawl over the ground on its belly until after the Fall.
