In this new diptych by Victor Bregeda, we see Adam and Eve on separate tables each surrounded by resplendent pink roses. Adam's roses are in full bloom; Eve's are slightly younger and not so open.
There is a plank bridging the two tables but so far neither has ventured across into the other's world. Eve is striking the pose of an artist's model. Adam is an artist and has just completed a painting of an apple that sits on the table beyond Eve, and has apparently captured Adam's attention. He seems to have ignored the beautiful nude body of Eve in favor of the apple that exists in her world, but not in his.
Roses represent purity and perfection while the apple symbolizes the temptation that Eve uses to entice Adam into her world. At this point he seems content to paint images of the apple without venturing closer, but eventually he will no doubt walk the plank.
