This painting is based on the mythology of Adam and Eve. Here the viewer catches Eve's eyes as she takes a bite of the ethereal apple of knowledge. The artist enables the viewer to step into what would be Adams gaze. He or she, is privileged to whiteness the moment of the snakes triumph, as it weaves inside Eve's hair.
