Description

In Genesis 3, a serpent persuades the woman to eat from its forbidden fruit from "the tree of the knowledge of good and evil." In Western Christian art, the fruit of the tree is commonly depicted as the apple, which originated in central Asia. This depiction may have originated as a Latin pun: by eating the mālum (apple), Eve contracted malum (evil).
