"Watch where you are putting your hands!" AN incredible illustration consider its age.
Philine: Yes, a warning we should be aware in our days again! Adam wants to say here "S h e has seduced me to eat the apple!" Many thanks, Alan!
Surprenant pour l'epoque non?
Philine: Vraiment, merci bien, Claudine!

I do like to see representations of Adam & Eve; I rarely see it in stained glass
Philine: You are right, Lisl, I don't know why so rarely. Many thanks!
I love the gold in the art work but abhor that story.
Philine: But this story says much about us human beings. Many thanks, Mary!
They have been painted to look really ashamed.
Philine: Yes, since the Fall of Man we humans know shame. Many thanks, Brian!
it looks like a Fresco painting Philine... i see that Adam is doing two double duties by covering Eve's breast....petersmile
