What an intriguing interpretation of the ancient story! I love how you portray the serpent- so green and vibrant and enticing...and also how you weave rather macabre aspects into the main of this, around the wonderfully curvy little Eve at the centre of it all. :heart:

This is my most favourite vision of the Adam & Eve story. I love this. Very awsome job. I like how you showed the rib of the tree reaching out to Eve. It reminds of the way she was created. Very good, very awsome. I'm faving this one. Very awsome.
