Where can I find this in Berlin?
Cranach depicts the moment when Eve passes the forbidden apple to Adam. Both are standing naked in the Garden of Eden. A deer is resting at Adam’s feet, a lion at Eve’s. Eve’s long blond curls flow down her back. Adam is holding a twig, which seemingly coincidentally covers both his and her shameful body parts. The tree of knowledge of good and evil is pictured in the background. Eve passes the forbidden fruit to Adam. The snake, who tricked Eve, is entwined around the tree next to her ear, as if he were about to whisper to her.
