Adam and Eve Panel

Flemish, 16th c.

Oak. The rarest of the rare! Why? Well, have you ever seen Adam and Eve without the apple and serpent? Here they are shown before the Fall under a tree of life that morphs into a grotesque mask of the Green Man (fertility). Eve is wearing a belt with a purse(!), and as for Adam's left hand…An intriguing image of Eden to say the least! Great color ranging from light to dark chocolate with well worn high spots. Very good condition
