In the depiction of Adam and Eve from this series, Dalí presents Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden at the moment they are tempted to eat the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge. In Dalí’s depiction of the historic biblical event, both figures reach simultaneously for the bright red apple, which hangs from a spindly tree branch while the sly serpent wrapped around the trunk looks on.
